Rocky Fielding wants Edgar Berlanga next!
Former WBA regular super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding (28-2, 16KOs) is apparently itching to get back into the ring. In consequence, his focus turns towards Edgar “The Chosen One” Berlanga (17-0, 16KOs). Notably, Berlanga is a hard-hitting super middleweight contender that ranks number 6 (WBO) and number 7 (WBA). Fielding hasn’t fought since stopping Abdallah Paziwapazi in two rounds in November of 2019.
Rocky Fielding went to Instagram instructing Berlanga to tell his promoter, Bob Arum, to give him a call after the the Puerto Rican KO artist is done facing “Taxi Drivers”. Berlanga responded by making the proclamation that he would “knock him the fuck out”!
BERLANGA SPEAKS THE TRUTH!
Personally, I like the confidence that Fielding is showcasing by calling out a guy like Berlanga. However, let’s be real. In his two biggest fights, against Callum Smith and Canelo Alvarez, both would obliterate him! He didn’t make it out of the first round against Callum Smith in their November 2015 fight. In December of 2018, Alvarez would fold him like a lawn chair at a Fourth of July barbecue inside three rounds!
Needless to say, if these two men fight, Berlanga is more than capable of turning out the lights of Fielding!
