Rocky Fielding believes he has the power to KO Callum Smith when the two unbeaten Super Middleweights clash for the British title at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 21, live on Sky Sports.

Fielding and Smith have an even share of 24 KOs in the paid ranks, but Rocky believes that Smith has struggled to put away two of his tougher opponents in Nikola Sjekloca and Christopher Rebrasse, and that if he connects with Smith’s chin, the first defeat ‘Mundo’ suffers in the pros will be via KO.

“It’s a great fight, one I am confident that I can win, and I think I will knock him out,” said Fielding. “He’s been in with Sjekloca and Rebrasse who cannot punch and gone the distance. They caught him with shots that if I threw them, they would hurt him. He’s a good fighter, he’s doing his thing, and I knew that they would say they have not seen anything different from me, but when we get in there they will see what I am capable of.

“He’s been putting away blown up Middleweights with his body shots. He put Rebrasse down with one but he got up, take that away and what has he got? When I come in throwing shots from different angles and with both hands, I’ve been knocking people clean out – putting them to sleep like I did with Luke Blackledge – he can whack but so can I.

“The city has wanted a massive fight for years and we’re going to deliver it.”

Fielding’s clash with Smith tops a massive night of boxing on Merseyside with the coveted Lord Lonsdale belt taking centre stage – Scotty Cardle defends his Lightweight title against local favourite Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd while Chris Jenkins and Tyrone Nurse rematch for the vacant Super Lightweight crown – while in the chief support bout, Ricky Burns can take a huge step towards reclaiming his WBO World Lightweight title when he faces Josh King for the Inter-Continental Lightweight title.

Limited tickets are sale now from the Echo Arena website www.echoarena.com and on 0844 8000 400 – priced £40, £60, £80, £100 and £150.
