Rocky Fielding faces big puncher Abdallah Paziwapazi

Having challenged the great Canelo back in December, former world super-middleweight champion Fielding (27-2, 15 KOs) returns against a fearsome puncher in Abdallah Paziwapazi (26-6-1, 23 KOs) on November 15.

The Tanzanian dangerman was last seen blasting to the WBO Asia Pacific title with an eye-catching third-round stoppage of Zulipikaer Maimaitiali in China.

Fielding, however, is typically focused on his own job at the #MTKFightNight at Liverpool’s Olympia.

Fielding said: “The level I’m at, the motivation is always there for whoever I fight. I just train hard and prepare for whoever is in front of me and now we know it’s him, we can work on the shots that will wipe him out.

“I’ve had a look through his record and he’s got a lot of stoppages but a lot of them have been at a low level. Whenever he’s stepped up, he’s lost and I’m on a different level to all of his previous opponents.

“I don’t plan on having a long night with him. When Paziwapazi feels my power, he’ll know.

“I’m just focused on performing and getting back to winning ways. I want to get back in the mix for bigger things but that starts with this fight and looking good in it.

“The Olympia is my home. I’ve had lots of great nights there – I won Prizefighter, the English title, the Commonwealth title and it’s where my career started. It’ll be packed and a great night.”

Joining Fielding on the bill is his gym-mate and four-time world title challenger Martin Murray, with the likes of Olympic heroine Tasha Jonas, Ged Carroll, Alex Dickinson, John Quigley and more vying for the limelight.
