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

Canelo took to social media to post, "With great emotion I announce my next fight". He will go in as the much bigger man, a big underdog in the fight.

Alvarez has only fought above 160 pounds just once in his career, which was against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.in May 2017. He will challenge Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs), an unsung English fighter who holds the secondary version of the WBA title after winning his last six bouts.

Although Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs), 28, of Mexico, suffered a nasty cut over his left eye against Golovkin, Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez told ESPN earlier this week that Alvarez had been told by his doctor that he would be fine to fight in December and would soon be permitted to return to training. Alvarez most recently fought on HBO, but his contract with the company expired with the GGG fight.

Fielding's promoter Eddie Hearn took to Twitter to congratulate him on landing the massive fight.
