Rocky Fielding praises the Jamie Moore effect ahead of world title shot

Ringside 14/07/2018

World title challenger Rocky Fielding has championed the team spirit in Jamie Moore’s gym ahead of his big night in Germany.

Fielding (26-1-KO14) takes on WBA world super-middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge in Offenburg on Saturday night and is eager to show off further improvement.

With the likes of two-weight world champion Carl Frampton and five-times world title challenger Martin Murray as stable-mates, Fielding is grateful to be part of a flourishing team.

Fielding: “Training in that gym has revitalised me. Before I fought Callum Smith, I didn’t have those nerves and that fear factor.

“Being around experienced lads and under Jamie, I’ve got the butterflies back. I’ve got the excitement back. I’m in the zone and I’m switched on. It’s given me a real push.

“It’s so important to be around top-class fighters. There’s a great buzz in the gym and everyone is pushing each other. You’ve got people like Carl and Martin who’ve been there and done it.

“It’s always tough fighting away from home and Martin has had a couple of decisions not go his way in Germany. It’s just a ring though and I’m going to do a job in it.

“I think my power has improved. I’m really sinking the shots in now. I always had the naturally heavy hands but now I’m punching with better technique.”
