On January 18, 2008, Fields defeated former IBF cruiserweight champion Kelvin Davis by technical knockout at 55 seconds of the first round. In June 2007, Davis had broken his back in two places while training in Australia and was winless in his last eight bouts of a futile comeback attempt, getting knocked out four times after the broken back including the Fields bout. Fields dropped Davis with the first right hand he threw. Davis was subsequently knocked out in the first round again by Alexander Frenkel.
Fields suffered his first career loss against Ola Afolabi on April 12, 2008, in a bout for the vacant WBO NABO cruiserweight title, the only pro bout in which Fields went past the sixth round. Fields got tired in the 8th round, Afolabi knocking him down twice in the round. Fields managed to survive the round. In the 10th round, Fields was knocked down again, and got up, but was getting hit. The referee had to stop the fight by technical knockout at 55 seconds of the tenth round. Afolabi had not fought in two and a half years prior to the Fields bout.
Fields fought Jeff Yeoman in Oklahoma City on February 11, 2010, and won the fight by technical knockout in the 3rd round.
