Rocky Fielding will get his long awaited shot at world honours after TEAM SAUERLAND announce that he will face their charge Tyrone Zeuge on July 14 in Offerberg, Germany for Zeuge’s WBA world super-middleweight strap.
Zeuge will be making his 4th defence of the title he won in 2016 against the SCOUSER.
“I’m very excited for this. It’s what I have dreamed of since being a young kid – to become World Champion and we’re nearly there,” Fielding told DAILY SPORT Boxing. “To have the date locked in makes it all the more real and it’s something now to focus and aim towards. I have watched and tracked Zeuge since he won the World Title against De Carolis. He’s a good fighter with decent foot work in particular. He’s undefeated and has done everything they have asked of him so far.
“I boxed on the recent Brook card and been ticking over and working with my coach Jamie Moore since. The Ramirez fight fell through which was disappointing but everything happens for a reason, my promoter Eddie Hearn said I’ll be in big fight in July so that kept me going. I can’t wait for the opening bell.”
The bout will be televised LIVE on SKY SPORTS here in the UK.
