Trainer Jamie Moore has warned champion Tyron Zeuge that WBA world super-middleweight title challenger Rocky Fielding is full of focus, belief and power.
Liverpool’s Fielding (26-1-KO14) is in Offenburg, Germany for his maiden world title shot on Saturday and Moore is adamant Zeuge (22-0-1-KO12) will be forced out of his comfort zone.
Moore said: “Zeuge is very solid in every department but outstanding in none. He’s above average but there’s nothing in his style I have to warn Rocky to steer clear of.
“Because of that, Rocky can take more risks. When Rocky can take risks, he’s relaxed and when he lets his hands go in that state, he punches very hard.
“My arms and ribs have taken an absolute hiding from him throughout this camp. He’s been ‘on one’ and I can really see him stopping Zeuge on Saturday night and making a massive statement.
“I’ve got to be with Rocky psychologically all the way through this – reading him and understanding him – but if I keep him where he needs to be then I expect a great performance.
“Rocky goes into this fight full of belief. He understands what he’s capable of now and the other top-level fighters in the gym have reaffirmed that. His devastating first-round stoppage of David Brophy gives him even more momentum.”
