Rocky Fielding Inks Deal With Promoter Frank Warren

By Phil D. Jay

Undefeated super-middleweight Rocky Fielding has signed an exclusive 6-fight a year contract with Frank Warren’s Sports Network, WBN can reveal. Warren already has big name fighters like Nathan Cleverly, Frankie Gavin, Dereck Chisora and James DeGale in his ranks and will hope to make the likeable Scouser a household name like the others.

Fielding, 23, was an unknown before the tournament on March 23rd at the Olympia in Liverpool, coming in at five days notice to knockout all three of his opponents, claiming the £32,000 cheque in impressive style. His record doubled from 3-0 with zero KO’s to a much more eye-catching 6-0 with three KO’s prompting Warren to headhunt the Liverpudlian.

The 168lb Prizefighter winner spoke to WBN recently declaring his desire to put any challenge for titles out of his mind for a while and not jump into a title shot straight away as some previous winners of the eight-man tournament have done. Fielding intends on biding his time and gathering as much experience as possible and has chosen wisely in signing with Warren.

“I am really buzzing, can’t wait to get started with Frank. I am really happy and just want to get in that ring and fight again,” Fielding told WBN.

With James DeGale and George Groves competing for the British and Commonwealth titles in May, Fielding knows that he has time on his side to get the necessary wins under his belt to be able to challenge the titleholders in the future.
