by Shaun Brown

BoxingScene.com understands that Rocky Fielding will challenge WBA super middleweight world title holder Tyron Zeuge this summer.

Fielding, ranked number four by the organisation, has been itching for a crack at Zeuge for some time and now it seems like he has landed his opportunity.

Thirty-year-old Fielding, who holds a ledger of (26-1, 14 KOs), had also been linked to a fight against IBF champion James DeGale, as well as a final eliminator against Caleb Plant.

WBA Super champion George Groves will defend his crown against Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series final on a date to be confirmed.

Fielding has bounced back impressively since losing to Smith in one round back in 2015. 'Rocky' has notched up five wins since, including victories over Christopher Rebrasse and John Ryder a Matchroom stable-mate of Fielding's.

Ryder, ranked three with the WBA, would no doubt have been in the running for a fight against Zeuge too, The 29-year-old has also been linked to a fight against Chris Eubank Jr. on the undercard of Groves vs. Smith.

Zeuge (22-0-1, 12 KOs) picked up the WBA strap when defeating Giovanni De Carolis second time around in 2016. The 26-year-old German has since gone on to defend his title three times including two wins over Isaac Ekpo and Fielding's fellow Liverpudlian Paul Smith.

Zeuge vs. Fielding could be confirmed later today (June 11).

IN OTHER NEWS: Carl Frampton said regarding his August 18 return, Tyson Fury: “I’d rather it was a world title but nobody’s to blame – all the champions have recently fought and Warrington beating Selby threw a spanner in the works because Selby would’ve taken the fight.
 
“I’ve loads left. My last performance was the second best of my career after the first Leo Santa Cruz fight. I feel like I’m enjoying it more and while I’m still performing, I’ll do it as long as I can.
 
“It’s great to have Tyson Fury on the undercard. To have someone of his stature on the undercard is massive and he’ll be up against a more serious opponent this time so it’s good for everyone.”
