There’s just over two weeks to go until Rocky Fielding walks out at the Echo Arena once again and the Liverpool boxer said he is working harder than ever ahead of the clash against Christopher Rebrasse.
It’s been countless hours of road work, time in the gym and hundreds of sparring rounds for Fielding ahead of the clash against the former European Champion, and he is feeling in great shape ahead of the WBC International title fight on April 2.
“In terms of the preparation, it’s been more of the same with James Morton and Oliver Harrison with strength and gym work along with lots of sparring, but it’s just been a case of trying to take things up another level and pushing myself even harder,” explained Rocky.
“It’s been a much shorter camp for this fight and it has gone really quickly. I’d worked hard to keep myself in pretty good shape following the last fight so it was a lot easier to get straight back into the swing of things and hit the ground running.”
Tickets for the fight are on sale now by clicking here for what should be another memorable night in Liverpool with Rebrasse making the trip across the English Channel and Rocky looking to end the contest inside the distance, something George Groves and Callum Smith failed to do against the Frenchman.
Speaking just after stepping out of the ring after 12 rounds of hard Martin Murray, Rocky added that the excitement levels are building day by day.
He said: “I’ve been to a few of the boxing shows in recent weeks and that has made me even more excited. There’s been some great bills in the past few weeks and plenty of big nights coming up, including in Liverpool on April 2.
“British boxing is bouncing at the minute and I’m really happy to play my part in that. Hopefully the whole crowd will be jumping up and down again when Sweet Caroline is played in the Arena. I’ve heard it in quite a few places now and it really seems to get the fans going and I know it will be another great night.”
Rocky is proud to be making a donation towards the Alder Hey Children’s Charity for every ticket sold for the fight.
