Quigley Confident Ahead of British Masters Bid

Invictus-trained Liverpool light middleweight Nick Quigley is in confident mood in the lead up to his British Masters title fight on July 21st against Terry Carruthers, a middleweight who has been in with two other Scousers in Steve Harkin and fellow light middleweight rising star Joe Selkirk (9-0).

Quigley, who’s last fight was an easy points win in a four-rounder against Kevin McCauley, yesterday told me that he was “preparing well” in the lead up to the biggest fight of his professional career so far. Continue reading

Fielding Signs With Matchroom

Ex-Frank Warren fighter Rocky Fielding has today signed a contract with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing following his release by FWP last week.

Rocky, 24, was released by Warren and his camp following words from his father on the social networking site Twitter. Tosh, a 1984 FA Youth Cup winner with Everton, complained about his son’s lack of activity in the boxing ring.

Fielding, who won the Prizefighter championship on Sky last year – along with Eddie Hearn – has set himself a goal of twelve months before fighting for a British title. He now has a chance to shine under the watchful eye of Hearn following months of inactivity under previous promoter Frank Warren. Continue reading

Golden Gloves ABC Open Show – 2nd June, 2012

Saturday, 2nd June, 2012 saw an open amateur boxing show at the Black-E in Liverpool, in association with the Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing Club.

The venue, which was used by the Golden Gloves ABC for the first time to host amateur shows, looked relatively big and come the start of the boxing, was nowhere near full, which was a real, real shame. However, the crowd that was there made up for the crowd that wasn’t, by making a huge racket, which only added to the significance and atmosphere of the night. Continue reading

Fielding Freed by Frank

24-year-old Liverpool super middleweight Rocky Fielding has been released by Frank Warren Promotions.

It was this morning revealed that Rocky’s contract with Warren and his promotional team had been terminated and that he was being released.

Fielding’s father Tosh, a 1984 FA Youth Cup winner with Everton, said on Twitter, “Frank Warren lets Rocky Fielding go – because of his Dad’s honest words on Twitter! Well it worked!! Thank you Frank!!”

Rocky’s a promising talent – a Prizefighter winner with a currently unblemished ring record. For me, it’s only a matter of time before he’s signed by a promoter that’s actually interested in keeping their fighters busy and putting on shows.

Promoters such as Eddie Hearn (Matchroom) and David Coldwell (Coldwell Boxing) would be extremely interested in signing the man from Stockbridge Village in my view. However, that’s just what I think; the aforementioned may beg to differ, but it remains to be seen.

Whatever happens, good luck to Rocky in the future.
