Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions is proud to announce the signing of cruiserweight prospect Eric “Danger” Fields (20-1, 15 KOs) to a promotional agreement.
29-year-old Fields is a native of Ardmore, Oklahoma, rated #15 by the World Boxing Association. Fields was the 2005 and 2006 National Golden Gloves Heavyweight champion and holds a victory in the amateurs over Tony Grano, the U.S. Amateur Heavyweight Champion.
As a pro, Fields already holds victories over former world champion Kelvin Davis (KO 1), former world title challenger Rubin Williams (TKO 2) and 2004 Mexican Olympian Ramiro Reducindo (KO 1). His only loss came against former world champion Ola Afolabi in 2008.
Tall, with fast, powerful hands, Fields is a natural athlete who is able to finish a fight with any of the punches in his powerful two-fisted combinations. He decided to start boxing after an episode of Friday Night Fights in which he felt he could easily beat a fighter who was 22-0 at the time.
“Eric has all the potential in the world and we’re going to t help him reach it,” said Greg Cohen. “Because of his power, he may have had stamina issues earlier in his career, but they’re all ironed out now through experience and dedication. Eric Fields is on his way up the cruiserweight division. He’s tall and strong and extremely dangerous. That’s why they call him Danger. Within the next 12 months I expect Eric to win his first world title.”
