BEFORE Canelo Alvarez’ first fight with Gennady Golovkin, the Kazakh’s trainer Abel Sanchez hotly complained about how Canelo had his hands wrapped. But Rocky Fielding’s team don’t share such concerns ahead of his clash with the Mexican superstar in tonight (December 15) at Madison Square Garden.

“I know that if his handwraps were illegal the New York State Athletic Commission would ensure that it was dealt with very promptly,” Fielding’s promoter Eddie Hearn told Boxing News.

“Someone from Rocky’s team is watching the handwrap, if something’s untoward, they’re going to complain and the commission is going to deal with it. If it’s legal the commission will pass it. That doesn’t even concern me.”
