Liverpool's Rocky Fielding faces the biggest fight of his life after signing to defend his WBA super middleweight title against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

Twenty-eight-year-old Mexican Canelo is one of the most feared fighters on the planet and recently emerged victorious from a rematch with Gennady Golovkin.

He and Fielding will face off in New York at Madison Square Garden on December 15.

Canelo has a 53-fight record, losing just once, on decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2013. Fielding joins a long line of British opponents, with Liam Smith (2016), Amir Khan (2016), Ryan Rhodes (2011) and Matthew Hatton (2011) all beaten.

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 is the hottest of favourites at 1/50 with Sky Bet while you can back Fielding at 12/1 to cause a huge upset.
