Former Hagler sparring partner to referee Joshua v Klitschko

David Fields has been confirmed as the third man in the ring for the massive heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko this weekend.

Fields, a 17-year veteran, will attempt to keep the two huge punchers in order for the duration of their record-breaking contest at Wembley Stadium.

The former boxer has taken charge of high profile bouts, Sergey Kovalev v Bernard Hopkins and Marco Huck v Krzysztof Glowacki recently and seems to be a sound choice for what is the biggest top division bout of all time on UK soil.

Joshua and Klitschko will battle for the IBF, WBA and IBO belts in front of 90,000 fans in a bid to be crowned the greatest heavyweight on the planet.

Judges has also been confirmed for the UK Pay-Per-View event on Sky Sports Box Office as Steve Weisfeld (USA), Don Trella (USA) and Nelson Vazquez (Puerto Rico) are set to take their places at ringside.
