Udofia scores impressive knockout, sets up Southern Area title fight with Tey Lynn Jones

Goodwin Boxing produced another entertaining night of Boxing on Saturday night allowing a couple of fighters to make their professional debuts whilst others improved their Boxing record, protecting their 0 in the process.

Stealing the show in a fight only announced a few days before fight night, Middleweight prospect Linus Udofia moved to 10-0, dismantling Bulgarian fighter Konstantin Alexandrov in the process with a peach of a body shot during the 2nd round.

Immediately after the fight, Udofia called out Southern Area champ Tey Lynn Jones via social media, with that fight potentially happening before the end of the year, with the belt on the line.

Super Welterweight Adrian Martin also featured on the card, defeating Andrej Moravek via a close points decision (58-56).

The 6’0 tall and incredibly rangy Martin was able to distribute his jab well early on in the fight, hitting Moravek with relevant ease. However, during the middle rounds Moravek had some success as well, perhaps explaining the close scorecard.

Towards the end of the bout Martin took control of the fight, solidifying the win and leaving his opponent frustrated in the process.

Making his professional debut, Lightweight Kofi Donker impressed on his debut in an entertaining fight, defeating Slovakian fighter Ivan Godor via a points decision.

Donker who signed with Goodwin Promotions earlier this year after 43 amateur fights and is aiming to be back in the ring again soon.

Another fighter making his debut on the card was Super-Middleweight Martin Foru. After 26 amateur fights with 22 of them being wins, Foru has also fought for the Dutch national Boxing team before turning professional.

Clearly displaying heavy power, Foru took two minutes and forty seconds to secure the first win of his professional career against Hungarian fighter Attila Tibor Nagy.

However, after fairly predictable results the evening drew to a close with the unbeaten Bantanweight prospect Prince Brady coming up against Bulgarian fighter Georgi Georgiev whose record stood at 5-11-1.

To the shock of the remaining York Hall crowd, many of whom where there specifically to support Brady, Georgiev hit the Irishman with quite possibly the finest shot of his career as of yet, putting Brady onto the floor towards the end of the first round.

After rising to his feet, the referee was very quick to call the fight off, thus awarding the Bulgarian fighter the victory, leaving the crowd speechless to end the night.
