The weigh-in results for Canelo Alvarez vs. Rocky Fielding, and both men made weight for Saturday’s WBA “regular” super-middleweight title clash. Fielding, who holds the belt, weighed 167.6 lbs, while Canelo, who is moving up in weight on a one-off occasion to get one more fight in 2018, came in at 167.4 lbs. He didn’t get any taller though, so the height and reach disadvantage will be noticeable.
