Rocky Fielding will make his long-awaited return to the ring tonight, nearly a year on from his defeat to Canelo Alvarez.
Fielding, the former WBA super middleweight champion, suffered a damaging loss to Canelo last December, being outclassed and knocked out inside three rounds.
The Mexican superstar dropped ‘Rocky from Stocky’ in the first and second rounds before finishing the job off soon after.
Fielding was set to return over the summer but had to pull out due to a foot injury.
The 32-year-old will now make his comeback this weekend when he takes on Abdallah Paziwapazi in his home town of Liverpool.

The fight will take place on Friday, November 15 and is being held at the Olympia in Liverpool.
The main event is expected to begin at around 10pm UK time.

Fielding vs Paziwapazi: What have they said?
Rocky Fielding: “I don’t plan on having a long night with him. When Paziwapazi feels my power, he’ll know.
“I’ve had a look through his record and he’s got a lot of stoppages but a lot of them have been at a low level.
“Whenever he’s stepped up, he’s lost and I’m on a different level to all of his previous opponents.”
