Live on

Fielding, trained by Jamie Moore, has lost just once in 27 fights (to fellow Liverpudlian Callum Smith) but has since beaten Christopher Rebrasse, John Ryder and David Brophy.

But Zeuge, making the fourth defence of his WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight title, is unbeaten and has home advantage in Offenburg.

Zeuge last year beat Paul Smith, also of Liverpool, and has boxed his entire career in Germany.

What the fighters say

There’s people close to me texting me ‘it’s is coming home, the belt’s coming home’. That’s all I’ve got in my head.

Rocky Fielding

I’ve watched a few of his fights and he looks like a good boxer with decent punching power so it should be a good fight.

Tyron Zeuge

What the trainers say

Technique, punch and footwork – these are strengths Tyron possesses. He just has a lot of talent.

Juergen Braehmer

If he does what he’s supposed to do on the night, which I’m sure he will, then I’ve got no doubt in my mind we’ll come away with that belt.

Jamie Moore

What the experts say

It’s not going to be easy and I do think Fielding needs to stop him

Carl Froch

[Rocky] has to stay mentally strong. He has to stay switched on. He has to handle fight week and he can’t let it consume him. He’s got to use it to his advantage and not let it eat away at him and not let it consume him. He has to control that.

Paul Smith

What the rival says

[Rocky] had a bit of a break and looked a bit refreshed against Brophy, as if he’s found his form again.
