"It has always been a desire of mine to fight in New York, and where better than at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden."

Fielding stopped Tyron Zeuge in Germany five months ago to win the WBA title; and now gets his chance to face the sport's biggest name, according to Alvarez's promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

The Golden Boy head is delighted to bring his fighter to a venue which has housed some of the best-known boxers in history, and believes this bout is part of Alvarez's journey to becoming one of the all-time greats.

"It was about time that the biggest star in boxing headed to Madison Square Garden," said De La Hoya.
