Ever Ready Fields Will Take On Maxwell

Updated: Mar 27, 2021

Cogan's Corner boxing gyms Ben Fields has stepped in at 4 days' notice to take on the highly rated and unbeaten Sam Maxwell on the Queensberry promotions show on Friday, March 26th. Maxwell 32 who is the current WBO European Super Lightweight champ was meant to take on another unbeaten fighter and current British and Commonwealth super-lightweight champ Akeem Brown. Maxwell and Brown (25) both have similar records winning 14 fights without defeat and their fight was going to be for all three titles. Unfortunately for Maxwell, Brown has had to pull out of the fight but in true Cogans Corner style the man nicknamed ‘The 0-Taker’ has agreed to step in. The fight will not be for any titles and will be over 8 rounds with the weight set at 10 stone 3.

As written about by myself earlier this week Ben has been training hard at Cogans Corner waiting for an opportunity like this to present its self and he was never going to turn this opportunity down. Fields has beaten 7 unbeaten fighters on the road already where he has earned the nickname ‘The 0-Taker’ but if Ben can pull this one off it will open some big doors for him. The fight will be Live on BT sports on a packed card with some of the Midlands finest fighters on it with the likes of Brad Foster, Danny Ball, and Zach Parker fighting.

Dexter’s Thoughts

I am so chuffed for Ben to get this opportunity as he has been working tirelessly in the gym since his last fight. Maxwell is 14 without defeat and has had a full training camp and will be looking to take his frustrations out on Fields. This will be one of Ben’s hardest fights to date, of that I’m sure, but if anyone can pull this off ‘The 0-Taker’ can, and if he does, this win will propel him up the rankings and into British title convention. I believe Fields has the grit and determination to pull this off and continue his boxing journey on to big fights and titles.

The Column wishes Ben the Best of luck.
