Bellew vs. Haye 2: Rocky Fielding Added To Undercard

by Shaun Brown

British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight champion Rocky Fielding (25-1, 14 KOs) will return to action on the Tony Bellew-David Haye 2 undercard on December 17 at the O2 Arena, London.

The 30-year-old Liverpudlian - ranked number five with the IBF - added the Commonwealth strap at the end of last month stopping Scotland's David Brophy inside one round. It was Fielding's second fight of the year after a split decision victory over John Ryder in April to win the vacant British title.

Fielding had been hoping to fight again this year, or early next year, against either European champion Hadillah Mohoumadi or the WBA's 'World' champion at 168lbs Tyron Zeuge.


Mohummadi, however, will make the first defence of his title against former Fielding foe Christopher Rebrasse on November 10 in Paris. Mohoumadi will hope this maiden defence lasts longer than the one he had against Callum Smith when he held the title last year, only for Smith to thump it out of his hands in the first round.

At time of writing there was no concrete opponent for Fielding, who will join Lenroy Thomas against Dave Allen on the Dec 17 show. Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed to iFL TV that Thomas versus Allen, originally due to take place this Saturday on the Joshua-Takam undercard, will be rescheduled with Thomas's Commonwealth Heavyweight title still on the line. Thomas and Allen fought for the vacant title in Sheffield in May with the Jamaican awarded a split decision verdict over 12 rounds.

Although not confirmed, one other fight on the Bellew-Haye 2 card could see further representation from Liverpool with Stephen Smith taking on Spain's Juli Giner for the vacant European Super Featherweight title.

Hearn is also hoping to add another show in December with Birmingham, Newcastle and Liverpool all under consideration to host it.

Does anyone even want to watch Wilder fight Stiverne again? The main event is worse than the undercards. Dominic Breazeale vs. Eric Molina - should be ok, they are both around the same level. Some potential good scraps after that.…
