Alvarez and Golovkin fought to a draw in September 2017.

The current WBA "super" and WBC middleweight champion, fresh off his majority decision victory over Gennady Golovkin on September 15, is going to fight WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on December 15 at Madison Square Garden. "Taking a big challenge".

At the convention, the WBC, which sanctions one of the world title belts Alvarez holds, ruled that Alvarez would be allowed a voluntary defense before the end of this year and ordered interim middleweight titlist Jermall Charlo (27-0, 21 KOs) to face Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) with the victor becoming Alvarez's WBC mandatory challenger.

Fielding has lost just once in a 28-fight career, though he has boxed more domestically, before winning his world strap against Tyron Zeuge in July.

Canelo Alvarez may be without a network, but the unified middleweight champion is not without an opponent, as he will face WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on December 15th. So while it's possible that Alvarez and Golden Boy could negotiate a one-off fight with their former home, this bout would offer another broadcaster the chance to begin a relationship with the Mexican star. HBO recently announced that they will be leaving the boxing business after 45 years.

Fielding has been riding a massive wave of momentum since getting stopped by Callum Smith in late 2015.

The fight while being an underdog for Fielding will also be one that will also see Canelo moving up in weight for, so Fielding will certainly go into it believing he can pull it off in his own mind.
