Fielding won the belt on 30 September with a crushing victory over David Brophy in Liverpool and has been put straight in at the deep-end opposite the ex-amateur star, a bronze medal winner of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Vijender, 31, has raced to 9-0 as a pro, including a short stint with Frank Warren, on the back of a decorated career donning the Indian vest.

Fielding is far more experienced than WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight champion Vijender.

Out of a total 26 fights, Fielding has won 25 including 14 knockouts. The 30-year-old British boxer is a former WBA Inter-Continental Super Middleweight champion as well as a former WBA Commonwealth and English Super Middleweight champion.
