Rocky Fielding Returns on Jan. 19 Prizefighter Bill
Fight Network Staff / December 18, 2012 - 12:44pm
The Liverpool super middleweight will kick off the night in his first fight since sustaining a hand injury when he defeated Carl Dilks with a fifth round stoppage to land the English title in October, a strap the 25 year old is set to defend in his hometown in March.
Fielding joins a great line-up of boxing in Wolverhampton, with Britain's most exciting young boxer Kal Yafai getting his first action of 2013 after the Betfair Prizefighter Welterweights III tournament.
The 28th edition of Matchroom Sport's eight-man, one-night tournament will feature unbeaten trio Glenn Foot, Dale Evans and Chad Gaynor alongside Nasser Al Harbi and Karl Place, with three names yet to be selected.
Fielding stepped into the bill when middleweight Ryan Aston sustained an injury in sparring.
