Sam Cox moved to 4-0 with a points victory over Georgi Georgiev on Saturday night as part of the supporting cast to Dave Allen’s heavyweight dust-up with Lucas Browne.
The 24-year-old, who is guided by Steve Goodwin, has enjoyed a solid start to his career in the paid ranks of boxing and says that he is happy with his journey so far.
He said: “I feel that I’m finding my feet well and progressing in the right way, developing and moulding into the pro’s little by little.”
The Londoner said he wants to take each fight as it comes but hopes to be challenging for honours very soon.
He told us: “There’s no particular person that I would like to fight in the near future, just whoever my trainer and manager think I’m ready for. I want to remain undefeated this year and then chase domestic titles next year. I’m 4-0 now so domestically, there are fights in my division in the future but for now, I’ll stick to my own lane. I don’t want to think about other people’s careers. We will meet when the timing and money are right.”
At the moment, Cox makes up a small part of the super-bantamweight division, which boasts an array of British talent including Josh Wale, Gavin McDonnell and Isaac Dogboe. The unbeaten prospect will be hoping that he’s hot on the tails of these fighters in the coming years.
The Islington man explained how he tries to replicate the attributes of other boxers but admits that there is one name that cannot be touched.
He said: “I look up to so many different fighters and I’m a fight fan myself. I like to take little things from the best fighters and try to add to my game. But then if I would have to say one, it would be Lomachenko as he is something you can’t replicate. He is just truly unbelievable.”
Sam Cox returns to action on 8thJune as part of a Goodwin Promotions show at the York Hall Leisure Centre, Bethnal Green.
