Vijender Singh will face Rocky Fielding for the British and Commonwealth Super middleweight title which will take place in March next year. Fielding who has 24 wins in his 25 bouts, which includes 14 knockouts, will be Vijender's first real test since he turned professional in June 2015.

In terms of experience, the 30-year-old Fielding has an upper hand over the WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight champion Vijender. Fielding is also a former WBA Inter-Continental super middleweight champion.
