Rocky Fielding To Get Tough Test in Bryan Vera

Rocky Fielding will face Brian Vera in a huge Super Middleweight clash in the summer.

The popular Liverpool man faces the Texan on a date and an venue to be confirmed next week, as Fielding looks for a big win on his CV to serve notice of his intentions at world level.

Fielding returned to action in March in Hull after damaging his hand in his destructive dismissal of former World title challenger Noe Gonzalez Alcoba in July in Liverpool, and the 27 year old will take a big step-up in class when he meets the 33 year old.

Vera holds impressive wins over Andy Lee, Sergio Mora and Serhiy Dzinziruk as well as taking Julio Cesar Chavez Jr the distance twice – and promoter Eddie Hearn believes that the fight will represent a watershed night in Fielding’s rise to the top.

“I have been working on getting Brian over here for a while and I think it's the perfect test for Rocky,” said Hearn. “Brian has mixed at top level and is always in all action fights. We are working on the date now and this will be confirmed next week.”

I think Vera stops Fielding. Rocky looked like **** in his last fight, granted he was coming off a lay-off.

Good match. Will tell us where Fielding is now at. Even when he was the first to take a Prizefighter tournament by winning all his bouts by KO he didn't look much to me. Upright, slow, rigid, mechanical. Didn't even…

And there's me getting all excited about the BBBofC ordering Fielding VS Callum Smith for the vacant British title.
