It's fight night! Although most experts will tell you that it will be less of a fight and more of a walk in the park for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. But Rocky Fielding will be hoping to make life as difficult as possible for him in New York City tonight. And we'll tell you how you can live stream the Canelo vs Fielding boxing match with this handy guide - you can even do so absolutely FREE.
Canelo vs Fielding - where and when
Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez takes on Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden in New York City shortly today (Saturday December 15).
Coverage of the undercard action began at 6pm local time. But it will be a long night of in-ring action, so don't expect to see Canelo and Fielding until around 11pm New York time. So that's around 8pm PT, and a bleary eyed 4am Sunday morning GMT.
Since his famous victory in the autumn against GGG Golovkin, Canelo has quite literally upped his game by increasing his weight to 76kg so he can fight in the super middleweight category. Waiting for him is the current WBA champion Rocky Fielding who won't want to give away his hard-earned belt. Mexican Canelo is a major threat to Fielding as he already has a history of moving weight categories and winning. His 50-1-2 and 34 KOs record sets him in great stead against Rocky's 27-1 with 15 KOs.
Rocky Fielding, at 31, is senior to 28-year-old Canelo but has worked his way up by fighting the toughest of boxers. The Liverpudlian has only lost once and that was back in August 2015. Since then Fielding has had a career defining fight against Tyron Zeuge, which he won to get the WBA super middleweight title.
This should make for a spectacular fight and you can catch it all streamed to anywhere you are. Read on to get the ultimate guide on how to live stream Canelo vs Fielding - you can even watch for FREE in the US.
