Callum Smith v Rocky Fielding Predictions

Published On Saturday, October 31, 2015By British Boxing News

Who's Fooling Who?

Unbeaten Liverpudlians, Callum Smith (17-0) and Rocky Fielding (21-0) lay it all on the line on November 7th at the Echo Arena in their hometown.

The unconquered duo will do battle for the Lonsdale Belt with Smith's WBC silver super-middleweight crown also on the line - live on Sky Sports.

Tipped as one of the brightest young stars in the sport, Smith came through a stern examination of his credentials when he outpointed Christopher Rebrasse in June while Fielding was arguably even more impressive in halting Brian Vera in two rounds on the same bill. Here we ask professionals from the world of boxing to lend us their expert opinions on 'Who's Fooling Who?' in a show where someone's '0' has go to go!

Dean Gillen (2-0) Unbeaten middleweight 

"Smith will edge this one for me. He's sharp, moves well and is a very technical boxer, on top of that, I believe he's bigger at the weight too.

I really like Rocky though, so wouldn't be disappointed with an upset." @TeamDeanoPro

George Hennon (2-0) Unbeaten Welterweight 

"Smith inside 8 for me, great fight though and can see every round being exciting. Must admit I'm a massive fan of Callum Smith." @georgehennon12

Thomas Kindon (5-0) Unbeaten super-bantamweight 

"I think Smith will win this, last round stoppage. I might be wrong but he's a bit bigger and he's strong so think he'll come on late." @kindon122

Matt Marsh (13-2) Former British super-bantamweight champion 

"Tough fight but I think Smith will pull through with a points victory." @MattMarsh147

"Smith is the favourite going into this and I have to side with the masses, I'm afraid. I think that the pair are so evenly matched but I just fancy Smith's technical ability over Rocky's. Smith is so tight defensively and with that fast, stinging jab and those body shots up the middle look spiteful every time they land. Rocky can bang but I think he's a little more open to shots than Smith. Therefore, I predict a points win to Smith." @timrickson
