Yoan Pablo Hernandez in Top Form For Fields Bout

Yoan Pablo Hernandez (27-1, 13 KOs) wants nothing more than to successfully defend his IBF Title on February 2 at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin. But in order to do so, the Berlin-based Cruiserweight has to get past his powerful American opposition Eric Fields (21-1, 15 KOs). Therefore, the 28-year-old is in intense preparations and currently in sparring.

Coach Ulli Wegner is convinced that the IBF Champion has what it takes to overcome his next challenger. "We have only just started with sparring on Monday, but it is already looking very promising," said the 70-year-old Wegner. Actually, there are hardly any harsh words by the coach who is known for being quite vociferous. Nevertheless, his prodigy has found some aspects he wants to improve on before he gets into the ring with Fields. "I'm getting more in to the flow of it with every session I complete. As soon as we get to the Max-Schmeling-Halle and it gets serious I will show Fields what I am all about." The champion believes that it is important to go through grueling and exhausting preparation periods before every fight.

"That actually makes it easier for me. I don't get that nervous if it isn't all going my way to begin with."

Next week, the Cruiserweight World Champion is leaving for training camp. In Kienbaum, close to Berlin, the Cuban born boxer will adjust the fine-tuning to get his engine running for the February 2 clash with Eric Fields.

Tickets for the big fight night at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany can be purchased at www.boxen.com and www.eventim.de.

[QUOTE=Hitman932]This is an interesting matchup. Fields looked like a great prospect a few years back when he blasted out Kelvin Davis in the first round but in his first step up against Ola Afolabi he gassed out and was KO'd in the final round. Since then he has gone 10-0 but has not beate...

I hate these articles with no pics. So deceiving. Anyway, Hernandez needs to rematch ol' boy after this and avenge the controversy or get KOed. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android
