EXCLUSIVE Bryan Vera confident he’ll beat ‘green’ Rocky Fielding in Liverpool

James Slater speaks to Bryan Vera ahead of fighting Rocky Fielding on June 26

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.
