Tye Fields photo by Chris Farina - Top RankBig Tye Fields (40-1-1 ND, 36 KOs) of Las Vegas, Nev., is a strong 275-pounds and he once again proved that he has outstanding boxing skills. He fought a 10-round heavyweight fight at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino against Roderick Willis (14-3-1, 8 KOs) of Dallas, Texas, knocking him out in the first round.

Fields, 33, is ranked No. 5 by the NABF. He is a nine-year professional record, and he is a natural southpaw.

The club fights, promoted by Top Rank on Versus Network, are popular with the majority of the fight cards featuring Mexican fighters. But you can rest assured that Bob Arum’s fighter Tye Field’s is one who will be on every club card. When Arums congratulated Fields on his win, Thurs, March 13, he stated, “I know how he looked a year ago. He pushed his punches, but the kid can punch now.”

Arum added that “deep down in his guts” he feels that Fields has a chance to become a world champion. Currently, Top Rank’s Bruce Trampler is looking to match Fields with Hasim Rahman sometime near the end of June.

The co-main events had Bobby Pacquiao (29-14-3, 13 KOs) of General Santos City, Philippines, and the brother of Manny Pacquiao get knocked out by Urbano Antillon (22-0, 14 KOs) of Maywood, Calif., who was the aggressor with the stronger punches.
