Canelo said: “I never like to get overconfident, whether I am the favourite or not.
“It is no secret we want to win this fight and then come back to our 160lbs division.

“Right now, I am 100 percent focused on Fielding.
“What I do know is I will fight in May and September next year.
“What I will do is give great fights to the public.”
