Sinclair Stops Felix in 6 to progress to the final of the Fight Cup at York Hall on Saturday night



Goodwin Boxing produced another entertaining night at the famous York Hall on Saturday night including a few unbeaten fighters, continuing to protect their perfect record.

With doors opening at 4pm and the last fight not finishing until 11pm, it was a long afternoon/evening of Boxing with a total of 17 fights on the card.

Here are some of the highlights of the night:

Duane Sinclair (8-0) V Dominic Felix (1-0-1) – 10 round contest

Promoted as the main event, Duane ‘Hotshot’ Sinclair faced Dominic Felix in a semi-final of a new concept called ‘Fight Cup’ which involves two semi-finals and one final.

The Light-Heavyweights were involved in a very competitive fight with plenty of fighting on the inside and outside.

However after taking a couple of shots and tasting the canvas on more than one occasion, the Referee decided that enough was enough in the Sixth round, subsequently awarding Sinclair the victory and progression to the final.

Trained by Mark Gillespie, Sinclair will box the winner of Darrell Church V Jordan Joseph which takes place next month, in the final.

Dave Birmingham (6-2) V Anesu Twala (4-0)

Coming off his first fight since being stopped by Paul Hyland Jnr, David Birmingham came up against the unbeaten Anesu Twala in a 6 round Lightweight contest.

In what could be described as a technical fight that turned scrappy, Birmingham seemed to take over as the fight aged, comfortably winning the last two rounds against Twala who was obviously taking a big step up in class compared to previous opponents. Birmingham saw through the last couple of rounds, with the scorecard finishing 59-55 in the Portsmouth fighter's favour.

Ryan Walker (7-0) V Michael Horabin (1-3)

In one of the most entertaining fights of the night, Ryan Walker challenged Michael Horabin in a 6 round contest in the Super-Bantanweight division.

In a fight where both boxers were willing to trade and test each other’s chins, Horabin seemed to be hurt in the 4th but managed to hang on before the fight was temporarily stopped in the 5th round due to an alleged low-blow from Walker.

As expected, Walker came through via a point’s victory with a title shot expected for the Londoner in the next few months.
