Canelo Alvarez – Boxer

Strengths: Stocky and physically strong especially in the upper-body. Aggressive and intelligent boxer/puncher with a deadly body attack. Throws whistling combinations with excellent power and leverage, especially with the left hook. Throws a fast and accurate jab from an air-tight guard. Skilled counterpuncher with outstanding timing and accuracy. Slick target with excellent ring vision and subtle side-to-side head movement. Bull-necked has never been off his feet and has displayed a rock solid chin throughout his career.

Weaknesses: Good but not great athleticism and must be set to punch. Was out quicked and out witted in his lopsided loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2013. Aggressive style makes him vulnerable while trading. Fights in explosive bursts but can be inactive for long stretches. Short for a middleweight. Average arm length. Average foot speed.

Rocky Fielding – Boxer

Strengths: Tall and sinewy at 6’1″ with a 75″ reach gives him an instant advantage over most opponents. Cagey veteran that knows his way around the ring. Tough and resilient with a strong will to win. Slicker than perceived target with clever defensive moves. Strong jab from long range is a useful range finder. Good motor with high punch volume. Knows how to work the body and rough things up.  Gritty and versatile with the ability to fight inside.

Weaknesses: Not a big puncher. Ordinary athlete with below-average hand speed. Was knocked out badly against contender Callum Smith in late 2015 bringing his chin into question.
