Indian boxing star Vijender Singh will be up against Commonwealth super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding of Britain on March 30, 2018. Fielding will defend his newly-acquired title that he won on September 30 with a crushing victory over David Brophy in Liverpool and has been put straight in at the deep-end opposite Vijender, an ex-amateur star, a bronze medal winner of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Vijender, 31, has raced to 9-0 as a pro, including a short stint with Frank Warren, on the back of a decorated career donning the Indian vest.

Fielding is far more experienced than WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight champion Vijender.

Out of a total 26 fights, Fielding has won 25 including 14 knockouts. The 30-year-old British boxer is a former WBA Inter-Continental super middleweight champion as well as a former WBA Commonwealth and English super middleweight champion.

Vijender, on the other hand, had outslugged his Chinese opponent Zulpikar Maimaitiali in a close bout to retain the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight title in August this year.
