The mexican promoter and former world champion – Oscar de la Hoya admitted that he has concerns for Canelo Alvarez, who will be facing the WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding this saturday in New York.
Fielding, 31, has a 12 cm reach and 12 cm height advantage over Saul Alvarez and hes been fighting in the super middleweight division for years.
“The fact he is moving up in weight is dangerous,” said De la Hoya. “Fielding is naturally big.
Canelo has to be sharp, focused and in shape, because Rocky is coming in with everything and has nothing to lose.
I am a little worried about this fight, but I think it will be great.”
