ROCKY FIELDING will be back in action again next month.
The British and Commonwealth super-middleweight has been out of the ring since last September.
But he will look to build on his one-round destruction of David Brophy, at the ECHO Arena in his home city, after being confirmed as an addition to the undercard of the return of Kell Brook.
Brook, a former IBF welterweight world champion, is set to make his debut up at super-welterweight against Sergey Rabchenko, exclusively live on Sky Sports, on March 3 at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield.
And Fielding, 30, will box on the ‘Rise Again’ bill, which is being promoted by Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, over eight rounds.
It is then understood that the once-defeated former English titlist will be handed a spot on the undercard of Tony Bellew’s May 5 heavyweight grudge rematch against David Haye at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Also on the Brook vs. Rabchenko card, David Allen will challenge Lenroy Thomas in a rematch for the Commonwealth heavyweight title, while Gavin McDonnell will challenge Gamal Yafai for the WBC International super-bantamweight title.
Dave Coldwell-trained Jordan Gill will box on the bill, with Lee Appleyard facing Atif Shafiq and Kid Galahad seeing action.
