The much shorter Canelo went to work right away dropping Fielding in round one with a crunching left hook to the body. Rocky was down a second time in round two from another Canelo left hook to the body. Canelo continued to overwhelm Fielding dropping him twice in the third, finishing him with a left hook to the body. The referee waved off the bout at 2:38 of the third. With the win, Canelo becomes one of four Mexicans to win world titles in three different weight classes.
