Rocky Fielding towered head and shoulders above Canelo Alvarez but weighed in only a quarter pound heavier for their world super middleweight title fight this Saturday night.
In the legendary Madison Square Garden Arena, in which the real Rocky of Liverpool will defend his WBA title Fielding, who rallied just under a half pound within the 12-stone limit, he said: & # 39; I'm ready for the biggest fight of my life. & # 39;
Canelo, the former light middleweight and current middleweight world champion, offers the elite handful of Mexican greats who have won world titles in three weight classes, said: "I wanted to fight here in the mecca of boxing.

I've also come here for glory, history and my legacy and I do not care about criticism from this opponent, who deserves respect. & # 39;
Canelo, who spoke against a background of a Mariachi band, is five centimeters shorter than Fielding at 5ft 9in.
But & # 39; Saul & # 39; has an enviable strength and is only once defeated in his professional career 53 fights.
That loss on the scorecards against Floyd Mayweather in 2013 was followed by eight wins and a controversial draw in his fight against Gennady Golovkin.

Fielding is 6ft 1in and will look forward to taking advantage of the fact that Alvarez is gaining weight.
The 31-year-old is set to be the biggest pay-day of his career in one of the most iconic locations of boxing and will strive to make his physical benefits dividends.
With the balanced scales, both men now count for hours until they are in the spotlight at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
