  • Multiple world champion Saul Alvarez from Mexico landing a right on the body of Briton Rocky Fielding in their WBA super middleweight bout at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. The referee stopped the fight in just eight minutes

Fielding, 28, defends his WBA title against the world's highest-profile fighter at Madison Square Garden, where he will also fight to resist becoming Alvarez's latest British victim.

On Canelo's decision to move up in weight + his hope for a Cinco de Mayo fight: "It's one I respect because obviously he's fighting for legacy and capturing another belt; it's a great thing for his career".

And surely that was by design.

Alvarez's triumph over Fielding was the first fight of his five-year, 11-fight deal worth a minimum of $365 million with DAZN, a new sports streaming service that launched in the United States in September. I don't care about what the critics think that this is an easy fight.

It was, ultimately, a total mismatch.

Asked if Alvarez has the power to compete at the elite end of the super-middleweight division, Fielding said: "Definitely". Almost half of those (35) were aimed at the Englishman's body.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez insisted he is open to a third fight against Gennady Golovkin following his stoppage victory over Rocky Fielding.

Alvarez piled on the pressure, with his left hand to the head and body doing the damage.

Former middleweight world titlist David Lemieux (40-4, 34 KOs), 29, of Montreal, who was scheduled to face Tureano Johnson (20-2, 14 KOs), 34, of the Bahamas, in the co-feature, with a possible May shot at Alvarez on the line, was pulled off the card Friday morning.

Google to Build $1 Billion Campus in New York City
The new Austin campus will mark Apple's third in the city, where the company already employees 6,200 workers. Google put its first office in NY almost 20 years ago, and plans to move into the new campus space by 2020.

Canelo has many options for his future bouts. Come on, man. I was prepared for a good strong David Lemieux. The plan was to hit the body.

He forced the champion against the ropes while landing those thudding attacks to the body.

"I stood there too long". I'm still fresh. I'm just looking forward to cementing my legacy for the long run.

Fielding said the body shots felt "like the wind was being taken out of me", adding: "He placed them well and caught me".

The fearless Fielding made it to his feet after the third knockdown, but he was quickly sent down a fourth time and Gonzalez waved the bout off at the 2:38 mark.

"Nowadays, I really have a lot of anger built up, good anger though, and I just want to hurt everybody when I'm in the ring".

"It was a great week, met some great people. I lived a dream".

"What I always want to do is to make the best fight whether they're for world titles or not", Alvarez said, then turned his attention to the Garden scene.

Alvarez himself refused to rule out a third meeting with Golovkin.
