Callum Smith and Rocky Fielding to fight for British Title
Liverpool rivals meet for Lonsdale belt on November 7th.
Callum Smith and Rocky Fielding will clash for the vacant British Super Middleweight title in an all-Liverpool blockbuster at the Echo Arena on November 7, live on Sky Sports.
The unbeaten Liverpool stars have been on a collision course following their impressive wins in June, with Fielding blasting away World rated Texan Brian Vera inside two rounds and Smith outpointing former European champion Christopher Rebrasse.
Along with the coveted Lord Lonsdale belt – vacated by Callum’s brother Paul – the winner will take huge steps on the World scene in the 168lbs division as KO star Smith (17-0) is rated at number two in the WBC where he holds the Silver title while big-hitting Fielding (21-0) is rated at six in the IBF.
“This is one of the biggest domestic fights of the year and such a fascinating fight,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.
“Neither fighter would back down or out of this fight and now fight fans get an absolute cracker. It is 21-0 vs. 17-0, both fighters are ranked highly across all World governing bodies, there is going to be some atmosphere at a packed Echo Arena on November 7 but the big question – Who’s Fooling Who?”
