Rocky Fielding and many pay per head sportsbooks believe that a victory over Charles Adamu on Saturday night in Liverpool at the Echo Arena will prove that he’s ready to enter the world scene.
Fielding will defend his Commonwealth super-middleweight title against the Ghanaian, who took the place of Liverpool’s Tony Dodson, and price per head services are very eager to see what will happen in the ring when this fight gets underway.
Fielding is confident that he’s ready to take on international opposition after 17 undefeated bouts as a professional.
“I think once I get this fight out of the way, and hopefully get the rounds in, then I will sit down with Eddie Hearn and plan things out,” said Fielding.
“The British title is something I am up for and I am keen to fight Paul Smith. I would like to know different options like an Inter-Continental title to start getting a world ranking and start getting myself up there.
“I am not saying I am passed British level, I have had 17 fights now and I have won the English, the Commonwealth, nearly everyone I have boxed has been British.
“I would like to start boxing some people now who are good Europeans or International fighters where I can start adapting to that style. But we will see after this fight. If it goes well I can concentrate on what happens next, and if the British is there I am happy to fight for it.
“He (Smith) has to defend the title by the end of May, so that can only be the Froch-Groves rematch card. It wouldn’t be fair on the Liverpool fight fans because that fight would be massive in the city, it would sell out the Echo Arena, whereas not everybody would get a chance to see it if it was at Wembley.
“We will have to see what happens and sit down after the fight and see what options we have.”

Veteran Adamu, who’s very well known with pay per head sportsbooks, has a record of 21-5, with losses to George Groves and Carl Froch amongst them. However, he won four fights since emerging last year from a three-year hiatus.
Pay per head sportsbooks are anticipating a very intense fight on Saturday, and would like to see if Felding is indeed ready for the international scene.
