Frenchman Rebrasse meets Smith for the vacant WBC Silver title while Texan Vera takes on Fielding for the vacant WBC International strap as all four men eye up the World title to be contested by George Groves and Badou Jack at the end of the summer.
Rebrasse met Groves for the Silver title in November, taking the ‘Saint’ 12 rounds with his European title on the line, and the 29 year old believes he’ll land a rematch with the Londoner if they both win their forthcoming clashes.
“There has been much talk of Smith facing Groves,” said Rebrasse. “But on the paper he hasn’t boxed anywhere near the opponents Groves has. Groves is good fighter that I have huge respect for. Despite him losing to Carl Froch twice, he has proved he can compete at World level – I look forward to getting my revenge on him when he beats Jack.
“I’m feeling very confident and focussed for this fight with Callum – there is no pressure on me as everyone is expecting him to beat me, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. My camp has been calm and focussed, we are ready to return to England and cause a big upset beating Callum in his home city.”
