Jeffrey Ofori extended his unbeaten record in the professional ranks to 7-0 with a precise and calculated breakdown of Luke Fash at the York Hall on Saturday night.
The opening round saw Ofori get behind the jab, walking Fash down and landing some crisp one-twos in sync. The precision and timing of the shots started to have a telling effect on the contest and this continued into the second round.
The same flurry of ferocious head and body punches punished Fash who was throwing very little back but still soaking up everything Ofori threw at him. Jeff started to use angles and dictate the pace of the fight in his favour, displaying an impressive repertoire of shots.
Fash was beginning to get desperate in the third and the confidence of Ofori to switch from orthodox to southpaw showed. Breaking off as he was being tied up and using his superior footwork and angles to outmanoeuvre Fash, Ofori found his rhythm very quickly and the fight started to slip from the away fighter.
Ofori forced the stoppage in the fourth round but could well have been stopped before with the referee seeing Fash fit to continue. In what was a mature performance from Ofori, the 28-year old sets up a mega showdown with Southern Area lightweight champion Jumaane Camero back at the Mecca of boxing.
