JAMIE Cox will face Rocky Fielding for the British super-middleweight title in September.

Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn announced that the pair will meet in the autumn with a date and venue yet to be confirmed.

On Twitter, Hearn said: “All agreed today, Rocky Fielding will defend his British Super Middleweight title against Jamie Cox in September. Date confirmation soon.”

The fight between the pair was mandated by the British Boxing Board of Control last month before Fielding had won the vacant belt.

Unbeaten Cox made his Matchroom debut last month, taking a technical decision ninth-round victory over Lewis Taylor to claim the WBA inter-continental title.

The Swindon southpaw, who made it 22 wins from as many contests that night, will be pleased that Hearn has delivered on his promise to keep him busy following his switch from Queensberry Promotions.

Following the former 2006 Commonwealth Games gold medallists’ win over Taylor, Cox’s trainer John Costello didn’t believe that Fielding should stay at 12 stone to face his fighter.

Costello told the Advertiser in May: “If Rocky Fielding wants to take the fight – then God bless him.

“But personally, I think we would see a better Rocky Fielding at light-heavyweight – I think that it would be a mistake for him to get into the ring with Jamie at 12 stone.

“If he does take the fight, we will treat him with the utmost respect because that is what he deserves.

“But I’m confident that Jamie will do a job on him.”
