NEW YORK (AP) When Rocky Fielding enters Madison Square Garden on Dec. 15, it won't be his first time in the big arena. It will be his initial visit for a boxing event - his fight against Canelo Alvarez.

The WBA super middleweight champion will put his belt on the line and be a hefty underdog against what even Fielding calls "an elite fighter ... the face of boxing ... a superstar."

Fielding and his girlfriend took a tour of the Garden a few years ago, then went to a basketball game. He hoped to someday be in the ring at the Manhattan venue that Fielding notes is the world's Mecca of boxing. He even imagined it.
