Canelo Alvarez faces Rocky Fielding tonight from the famed Madison Square Garden in New York. With the weigh-ins now in the books, some fans are already throwing around steroid accusations…

Rocky Fielding, the unlikely champion from Liverpool, England, puts his WBA regular middleweight title on the line tonight. If the story ended there it might not be as sensationalized as it has been.

What makes this crazy is Fielding, who previously lost to Callum Smith and has never fought outside of Europe, will face Canelo Alvarez. Currently holding the WBA super, WBC and lineal middleweight titles, Canelo is considered by many as a top 10 pound-for-pound.

Facing -1600 underdog status and an arguably much higher caliber opponent than ever before, Fielding, at least, will enjoy a massive height and reach advantage. Last night’s weigh-ins demonstrated that point well:

Canelo certainly appeared in fantastic shape as usual, but some fans are already pointing out a mark that appeared on Canelo’s left abdominal muscle. Gennady Golovkin already accused Alvarez of allegedly having needle marks on his body this past September.

One fan on Twitter made this side-by-side image, with the right hand zoomed in on the alleged needle mark showing during the Fielding weigh-ins:
