Check out our DAZN Boxing live coverage of Canelo vs Rocky.
It’s DAZN US’s first really big event since Anthony Joshua’s last title defense. And for the US audience, this should be bigger. Canelo Alvarez is the biggest US star in boxing and while his opponent Rocky Fielding isn’t all that well known, it should still be a semi-decent test to see if DAZN can get the subscriptions necessary to become the big player they want to be in the streaming game.
We’ll be back when Rocky starts his walk down the aisle at Madison Square Garden.
Canelo vs Rocky
We got three national anthems and a tremendously long Michael Buffer introduction. But we’re finally ready to go.
Canelo is wearing a knee brace and his knee may even be wrapped underneath. Canelo is coming out going to the body. Fielding is trying to hold on and then when Canelo stops punching, he fires back. He landed a couple, but Canelo doesn’t seem to be bothered. Canelo dropped him with a body shot. Fielding took a knee. Canelo ended the round strong. Easy 10-8 for him.
Canelo dropped him again with a left hook to his side. He just took another knee. Canelo is clearly dominating this fight and he has no worries about being hit.
Canelo finished him. He dropped him in the corner one time and Fielding looked toward his corner as if to see if it was okay to stop fighting. Nope, he was told to continue and ate another body shot and then was finished.
Winner: Canelo Alvarez by way of 3rd round TKO
