TOUGH and experienced campaigner Brian Vera, 23-9(14) will face unbeaten Liverpudlian Rocky Fielding in the summer and the 33-year-old warrior is once again looking forward to a hard, exciting fight. Coming off a points loss to the slick Willie Monroe Junior, who, Vera says, “ran all night,” the Texan is expecting a battle far more conducive to his fighting style against Rocky.
Firstly, how much do you know about Rocky Fielding, which of his fights have you seen?
He’s a good fighter, tall and long. He sparred Andy Lee and he told me he’s pretty good. But I feel I’ve got the experience and I feel stronger at 168-pounds. I do well against tall guys. I’m expecting a tough fight but this is the type of fight I need to get back in the mix.
