British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight Champion Rocky Fielding has been ordered to defend his newly-acquired super-middleweight title against Indian superstar Vijender Singh, states a Commonwealth Boxing Council bulletin.

This grand fight between two champion boxers is scheduled for 30 March 2018, in the UK.

Fielding has won the belt on 30 September with a crushing victory over David Brophy in Liverpool and has been put straight in at the deep-end opposite the ex-amateur star.

Vijender Singh, 31, has an impressive 9-0 record as a professional boxer, which also includes his short stint with Frank Warren, on the back of a decorated career donning the Indian vest.

The strapping six-footer could now meet Fielding in a massive contest provided both sides are on board and agree to terms in the coming months.

Rocky Fielding is far experienced than WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight Champion Vijender Singh. The Briton has 25 victories to his credit, from a total of 26 professional fights. He has secured 14 wins via knock outs.

The-30 year-old British boxer Rocky is former WBA Inter-Continental super middleweight champion as well as a former WBA Commonwealth and English Super middleweight champion.

Vijender is the current WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight Champion and WBO Oriental Super Middleweight Champion. He has bagged a bronze medal for India at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
