LIVERPOOL’S Rocky Fielding can only rue what might have been. He didn’t stay down when a left hook dropped him to a knee in the first round. He rose again in the second but he couldn’t make it through three rounds with the brilliant Canelo Alvarez.

“I never shied away from the challenge,” Rocky reflected afterwards. “I dared to be great. I lived the dream but I’ll come again. I’ll come back.”

Fielding appraised what Alvarez does well. “He’s strong. I was catching him with some shots but he kept coming forward. The body shots, it was more like the wind was getting took,” the Liverpudlian said.
