Stuart Goodwin ready for the challenge of Jimmy Haughney

Queensbury Boxing League - Stuart Goodwin ready for the challenge of Jimmy Haughney

Stuart Goodwin cited a great confidence boost in winning his last fight, as he now prepares to challenge for the Regional light-middleweight title. 

Goodwin will challenge for the Regional title on the Queensbury Boxing League’s ‘Capital Shakedown’ bill, staged at the Troxy, in London, on November 24. 

The Crawley man returned to winning ways in September when he outpointed Will Murphy, having previously been defeated by Josh Whittington in April. 

“It was a massive confidence boost for me, getting back to winning ways,” Goodwin said. 

“Obviously losing back in April to Josh Whittington, my first one back in a while, I felt like (Will Murphy fight) was must win with a lot of pressure coming into that one I just had to let my hands go. 

“I’m now fully focussed and confident of the job in hand on November 24th.” 

Goodwin will meet Londoner Jimmy Haughney for the title, an opponent his gym mate, Lee Cannon has defeated twice, and the Like2Box fighter cited he is receiving good advice from his team.   

“I know he’s a game southpaw, he’s very slippery and his work rate and intensity is quite high.” said Goodwin.  

“His fight with Lee is going to be totally different because we have different styles, but he’s very determined as he’s always very game. 

“I have taken on board what Lee has said and what he feels worked against him, but I have (Ian) Jumbo (Johnson) working above us telling us what to do, and he feeds off Adam Booth, so we have world class advice in the corner, so I’m going to listen to them.

“We’re working on a lot of things for southpaw’s and I actually enjoy sparring southpaw’s. I’ve never actually fought a southpaw but sparring wise I always love sparring them, so I’m looking forward to it.” 

Goodwin explained if he is successful in capturing the Regional title he would like to progress as much as he can in the QBL, but admitted his full attention is on the task in hand. 

He said: “We take each fight as it comes, I listen to my team and they advise me what the best thing to do going forward is.

“Of course, I want to go as high as I can, keep busy and we’ll see but I’m fully focussed on November 24th and I’m not looking at anything ahead.”
