Rocky Fielding vs Saul Alvarez Betting and Odds Preview
On December 15, the popular Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will try to snatch the WBA Super Middleweight title from current champion Rocky Fielding. The match in New York has been drawing quite the attention from the public. Presented by Golden Boy Promotions, the fight will be streamed live to more than 500 theaters in the USA across Fathom’s DBN (Digital Broadcast Network), giving fans a chance to see the thrilling fight in great HD quality.
The upcoming fight will be Canelo’s first after he defeated his nemesis Gennady Golovkin in a controversial rematch which he won via majority decision after 12 rounds. The rematch was almost as controversial as the first fight between the two middleweight boxers, with one match ending in a draw and the second going to Canelo. The Alvarez-Golovkin fights generated huge interest from fans, with millions of dollars received from tickets and PPV buys as well.
Canelo Alvarez is rightfully considered the world’s second-best active boxer by many respectable organizations and the best active middleweight boxer. The popular Mexican boxer is a great counterpuncher with 34 knockouts on his back who will fight to the death against anyone in the ring. He’s already defeated more than a few big names throughout his career, with Golovkin being his latest victim.
However, this time he’ll face tough competition in the Rocky Fielding. The English boxer may not be a household name like Canelo, but he’s a fierce fighter with only one loss in his career. He’s also the current WBA Super Middleweight champion, putting his title on the line against the Mexican boxer. Fielding, also known as The Rock and Rocky from Stocky, will be making his US debut against Canelo Alvarez after spending years climbing up the ladder of professional middleweight boxing over some of the fiercest UK boxers. The Liverpool-born boxer certainly won’t make things easy for Canelo Alvarez, who’s going to have to be at his best to get the title.
With only a few weeks until the fight, many boxing betting sites are offering quite attractive odds for the WBA Super Middleweight title fight. Unsurprisingly, Canelo is the absolute heavy favourite for the fight, but not all experts are sure that Fielding will go down easily.
Fun88 is a British bookmaker trying its best to provide a fun and excellent betting experience. After opening its doors in 2009, Fun88 has grown into one of the best bookies in the country, offering a huge number of sports and great odds and markets as well. Among the many popular sports in the bookie’s offer is boxing, including the Fielding vs. Alvarez fight scheduled to take place on December 15.
The odds, however, are not as exciting as the match we’re all waiting for. Canelo Alvarez is the heavy favourite with odds of 1/30. Rocky Fielding’s odds are much, much better at 33/4, but he’s also a far riskier choice. If you really believe The Rock can win, and it’s not like he’s without chances, you can win a solid sum of money in return for a reasonable bet.
The good news is that Fun88 offers a variety of markets for the fight which offer far more attractive odds. You can place bets on Round Betting, Fight Outcome, and Round Betting, with greatly improved odds from the Winner Full Time market. For example, if you think Alvarez will win by decision (or technical decision), the odds are 7/2, which sounds much better than his 1/30 odds in the Winner Full Time market.
SportPesa is a fast-growing Kenyan bookie brand rooted in community grassroots and sports development. After arriving in the UK and signing many partnership deals with Premier League clubs and sports organizations, SportPesa became a household name in England. The bookie’s offer of sports is amazing, with punters spoilt for choice thanks to the variety of markets and quite competitive odds.
For the Canelo vs. Fielding fight, SportPesa is giving the Mexican boxer greater chances of winning the fight. Canelo is available 1/30, which, you must agree, isn’t attractive at all. Placing a wager on Fielding’s chances, however, looks much better – the English boxer is available at 33/4. Of course, it sounds a bit risky, but let’s not forget that Fielding is the current holder of the WBA super middleweight title.
Just like Fun88, SportPesa offers 3 more markets for the fight, including Round Group and Group Betting as well as Fight Outcome. The Round Betting market looks particularly interesting – if you think that Fielding can win in Round 1 or 2, the odds are a whopping 100/1. On the other hand, Alvarez’s odds in the same markets are 11/1 and 9/1 respectively. Both sound very risky but are also much better than Canelo’s Winner Full Time odds.

Once again, Canelo Alvarez is a heavy favourite in the title match fight scheduled on December 15. BetVision is giving the ginger boxer odds of 30/1, which certainly won’t make him a punter’s favourite. If you’re planning on betting on the fight, Ricky Fielding is a much better option at 33/4.

If you’re not a fan of this particular market, you can also try predicting how many rounds will it take for one of the boxers to win. For example, if you think Canelo Alvarez will need 12 rounds to defeat Ricky Fielding, the odds are quite attractive at 30/1. At the same time, Alvarez is available at 7/2 for a win by decision or technical decision, or 1/4 for a win by KO, TKO or disqualification.
