Kell Brook Beats Down Robles: Mitchell, Fielding Win

By Alexey Sukachev

Echo Arena, Liverpool, Merseyside ----- Michael Fielding who is better known as "Rocky From Stocky" Fielding, a cousin of legendary English international Steven Gerrard, continued his own international education by successfully defeating rugged Ghanaian Charles Adamu over twelve. Fielding lost the Commonwealth super middleweight title on Friday, after failing to make weight for this match. The title was only on the line for Adamu and now remains vacant.

Fielding (18-0, 10 KOs) acquired the Commonwealth belt with the first-round TKO against another Ghanaian Mohammed Akrong in September 2013, then defended it with another TKO 1 versus Luke Blackledge. Adamu, on the other hand, has been inactvie for three years between 2010 and 2013 but earlier held the rainbow belt on two occasions.

Being rusty and ten years older than Fielding, Adamu struggled to find his game in the opening rounds. He was slower than he has ever been and also a bit shaky. Oppositely, Fielding was determined and consistent, although his punching power wasn't enough to put Asamu in danger.

The Ghanaian only got back on track in the fourth but Fielding continued to dominate the action. Adamu was limited to rare offensive outbursts dealing less damage than he took. He was also decked after a sneaky jab by Fielding in the seventh in what was ruled a flash knockdown.

At the end, all three judges had it lopsidedly for Rocky Fielding: 120-108. Adamu is forced back to 21-6, with 15 KOs.

Perennial (or even eternal, as some followers of the game would point out) welterweight contender Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KOs) continued to dismantle one opponent after another with yet another effective stoppage - this time of brave but bitterly overmatched Mexican Alvaro Robles (17-3, 15 KOs). The Special One, 27, halted Robles on his feet at 1:35 of the eighth round after a horrid beating.

IBF #1, WBO #7 and WBC #8 rated British welterweight has never been in serious danger this night, minding his business, methodically beating the Latino import to the punch. Brave Robles tried to punch with Brook rather than to roll with the Brit's punches and paid a steep price for that. Meanwhile, the Mexican's punching power was frightening on paper but not in real life against an elite opponent.

Two punches were crucial for the outcome of the fight - Brook's fast right hand and his left uppercut. Both weapons were seemingly unstoppable by almost non-existant Robles' guard. Brook added a razor-sharp jab to trouble Robles time and again in round four. The Mexican was also deducted a point for an illegal use of his head in the same round.

As rounds progressed, tonnage of eaten punches became barely tolerable by the Mexican but he stood to the punch and fiercely battled back albeit without any success at all. The seventh was horrible for Robles, who punched just enough not to be waved off. This punishment continued to pile up in the eighth round up until the moment referee has seen enough and halted the action with the Mexican being almost defenseless.

Brook has been looking for a title shot for four years already, stopping or dominating almost everyone put in front of him. During these years the former British, WBO I/C, WBA I/C and IBF International champion has been victorious in two WBO (against Krzysztof Benias and Michael Jennings - both by stoppages in 2010) and three IBF (against Carson Jones and Hector Saldivia in 2012 and Vyacheslav Senchenko in
2013) title eliminators, yet failing to realize his championship dream. He is now looking for the winner of the Shawn Porter vs. Paulie Mallignaggi IBF championship clash to finally seal his opportunity.

--------------------

Former amateur standout Neil L Perkins, a part of a highly talented generation of Liverpudlian fighters who emerged through amateur ranks during the last decade, made another step up in class, clearly outpointing former BBBofC English light middleweight champion Erick Ochieng (14-4, 4 KOs) over eight rounds.

The final score - 78-76 for Perkins - doesn't tell the full story of the bout, which was clearly dominated by sweeter and finer Liverpudlian. BoxingScene had it 79-73 - for Perkins (6-0, 1 KO), 34, who kicked off his pro career at a senior age of 33, and should move quickly from now on.

--------------------

Lightweight contender Kevin Mitchell (37-2, 27KOs) returned to the ring with a bang and stopped highly overmatched Mikheil Avakyan (21-12-4, 8KOs) in the second round.

Alvaro "hands of stone" Robles was no joke.

My money is in if Porter looks very impressive against Paulie Brook will find another excuse why not to fight. All he is looking for is to cash out with Khan. A waste because he could be in the mix…
