Indian boxing champion Vijender Singh will take on British and Commonwealth Super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding, who will defend his newly acquired title on March 30, 2018. This news was announced on Tuesday.
32-year-old Vijender Singh turned pro in October 2015 and since then has raced to a 9-0 record. He presently has the WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight title. Fielding, on the other hand, is way more experienced than Vijender and has won 25 of his 26 fights including 14 knockouts. Fielding won the belt on September 30 with a crushing victory over David Brophy in Liverpool and has been put straight in at the deep-end opposite the ex-amateur star, a bronze medal winner of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
