Liam Goodjohn took revenge for an Eastern Counties Senior Elite Championship defeat when he overcame John Wheatley with a unanimous victory in Harwich.

The 27-year-old Haddenham & Ely boxer was determined to make amends for his recent loss and he duly took control against his Harwich opponent from the start.

“Liam beat him quite easily,” said Haddenham & Ely coach Mike Sawyer.

“He boxed really well and used his left hand and came across with his right. He threw some good punches and was quite aggressive.”

There was no doubt about the outcome at the end of the three-round fight and the judges awarded the fight unanimously to Goodjohn.

With one win apiece to their name, a third and ‘decisive’ encounter now looks set to take place.

“It was good for Liam to get revenge,” continued Sawyer.

“We’re now looking to have another bout, probably on our own show.”

Also at Harwich, Jay Moore continued his impressive start to competitive boxing with a well deserved win in a 40kg bout.

He had too much to handle for his opponent and he forced a stoppage in the second round.

“He caught the other lad with some left and rights, and he got some good body shots in as well,” said Sawyer.

“He stopped the boy in the second round so he did really well.

“It was only his second fight but he looked very good.”
