Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez defeated Gennady Golovkin in Las Vegas last month

Canelo Alvarez, fresh from his huge majority decision victory over Gennady Golovkin to win the unified middleweight world title in their September 15 rematch, will be back in the ring before the end of the year and in a new weight division trying to win another belt.

Alvarez and Golovkin fought to a draw in September 2017. "I will fight for the world title at 168 pounds versus Rocky Fielding, the current WBA champion!" Alvarez won via majority decision.

WBA Super Middleweight Regular champion, Rocky Fielding, will make his first defence of the title on December 15th at Madison Square Garden, New York, against WBC, WBA Super and Ring middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. As promised, he will fight once more before the year's end. Alvarez had deep ties with HBO Boxing, but the network will no longer air live boxing following the Daniel Jacobs and Sergiy Derevyanchenko fight on October 27th.

"I'm very excited to announce my next fight". Alvarez most recently fought on HBO, but his contract with the company expired with the GGG fight.

The 31-year-old's only loss as a pro came against Callum Smith in November 2015, but he has reeled off six wins in a row since that first-round stoppage.

But he has opted to move up to super-middleweight for at least one fight having also won a world title at light-middleweight.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, speaking in Chicago ahead of the "Worlds Collide" bill, revealed Canelo's promoter Eric Gomez, of Golden Boy Promotions, approached him to arrange the fight.
