The next two weekends see two Goodwin boxers head into major contests live on the sky platform.
This weekend in Hull, Rakeem Noble takes on Tommy Coyle in a Super-Lightweight clash on the undercard of the McDonnell v Vargas world title clash. Noble rose to prominence in 2015 defeating two previously undefeated fighters to win and then retain the Southern Area title. A 4th round TKO over Sohail Ahmad was followed by a comprehensive points win over the highly touted Kay Prospere. Manager Goodwin then sought a high profile fight for Noble and this has come in the shape of “Boom Boom” Tommy Coyle. There is no doubt that Coyle has mixed at a higher level at both amateur and professional but this does not deter Noble. “This is the opportunity I have been waiting for and I had just returned from a full training camp in the Far East when I got the call. I am 100% ready and it will be be a great fight. I have the utmost respect for Tommy but under estimate me at your peril. Goodwin endorsed his boxers chances “Rakeem has the biggest engine of any boxer I have ever seen. Sky viewers are in for a treat this Saturday”.
Meanwhile the following Saturday on the Haye-Bellew undercard Frank Buglioni defends his British Light-Heavyweight title against undefeated Ricky Summers (13-0). Buglioni signed with Goodwin mid 2016 and shortly after Frank became mandatory for the British title. In December 2016 Frank fought in a contender for fight of the year stopping Hosea Burton in the last round to claim the title. Buglioni now looks to establish himself as British Champion before going in search of this second world title attempt. “Frank has been fantastic to work with” said Goodwin. “He deserves every success that comes his way and I am delighted to be managing him. 2017 will be a massive year under trainer Don Charles. Ricky Summers is undefeated and a big puncher so will be bringing a major test to Frank. He is improving every day and we are looking forward to another fantastic and exciting performance.”
