THE boxing world is primed and ready for one of the biggest fights in recent memory, as Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko will go toe-to-toe at Wembley.

Keep up to date with ALL the latest boxing news, gossip and rumours.
With the fight expected to be a cracker, referee David Fields will have his work cut out in the ring.
But who is David Fields… find out everything you need to know about the man in the middle for Joshua vs Klitschko.
Who is David Fields?
Fields is an American boxing referee from New Jersey.
He has enjoyed a 17-year career in the sport, most recently refereeing Ricky Lopez’s split-decision win over Pablo Cruz in New York last month.
Who else will be officiating the Joshua vs Klitschko fight?
Event organisers not only named Fields the referee this week, but also the three ringside judges.
Don Trella of the USA, Nelson Vasquez of Puerto Rico and Steve Weisfeld, also of America, will be in control from the sidelines.
They will also watch over the packed undercard, which includes Katie Taylor, Lawrence Okolie and Luke Campbell.
What other huge fights has David Fields refereed?
Despite a 17-year career, Fields has NEVER refereed in England.
His job has taken him to countries including Russia, Germany, Mexico, Canada and Japan… but never Britain.
The only other heavyweight title fight he has overseen was the 2006 showdown between Shannon Briggs and Chris Koval at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York.
