Fielding Aims To Outdo Chavez/Monroe With KO of Vera

Rocky Fielding is confident of sending an emphatic message to the super-middleweight division by stopping Brian Vera on June 26.

The unbeaten Liverpudlian, 27, will fight in front of his home fans at the Echo Arena live on Sky Sports against Texan Vera, who has not been stopped since 2008 and boasts a victory over current WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee.

But Fielding said: "The better the opponent in front of me, the better I will perform.

"I’m confident that when Vera feels my power and what I can do, he won’t want to know. I’m keen to get him out of there via a stoppage – Julio Chavez Jr couldn’t do that on either occasion, nor could Willie Monroe Jr – it would make a real statement.

"I’ve been watching footage of Vera with my trainer Oliver Harrison. I don’t expect anything too different from him stylistically. He has good fitness and I expect him to come forward and try to chop away at me - but I’ll break him down as the fight progresses.

"It’s a massive fight for me and if I have to produce a big performance – do that and it can really put me in to the mix on the world stage.

"After this fight I will sit round with my team and plan our next move. I don’t feel too far away from a world title fight, maybe another tough fight after this - then I will be ready.

"I want to prove that I’m world class, the things I do in the gym with Oliver demonstrate that - it’s just making the transition in to fight night."

Fielding fights as part of another stellar cast on Fight Night, with Martin Murray, Tony Bellew and Callum Smith also in action.

The BBBofC have designated Fielding VS Callum Smith for the vacant British title & that's the one I want to see!

Seems quite good with his padded record. Hasn't fought any1 of note but will have his 1st test this time out. Doubt this fight will end in a ko

Never seen Fielding fight. Anyone from across the pond care to chime in? He any good or someone to look forward to? Vera is a tough test for anyone.
