#1 Goodman defeats #8 Worawut

IBF #1, WBO #1, WBC #7 super bantamweight Sam Goodman (19-0, 8 KOs) pounded out a twelve round unanimous decision victory over previously unbeaten WBC #8 Chainoi Worawut (25-1-1, 15 KOs) on Wednesday night at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia. Scores were 117-111, 117-113, 119-109, however Goodman came away with an injury to his left hand. He is the mandatory challenger for undisputed champion Naoya Inoue.

Former two-time world title challenger Liam Wilson (14-3, 8 KOs), now competing at lightweight, scored a brutal eighth round KO against Youssef Dib (21-2, 11 KOs). Tough fight that ended with Wilson connecting with a left hook that spectacularly laid out Dib.

Also in action, 47-year-old former rugby star Barry Hall was annihilated in the first round by fellow rugby player Curtis Scott, 26. Scott needed only 34 seconds to finish Hall.

    • Goodman beat TJ from pillar to post when they fought on the last Tszyu undercard in Sydney. That fight makes no sense. Good payday for TJ (more power to him) but Goodman clearly deserves his shot. Was a cracking fight last night. Some really good toe to toe action. He deserves his shot.

      • I don’t disagree with you about Goodman but if the plan is for Inoue to fight in September, surely Goodman won’t be able to take that date; in which case Inoue should fight his other mandatory, MJ, and definitely not Doheny.

  • Just cannot see anyone upsetting Inoue in this division.
    Remember Inoue is a very clever boxer as well as a fighter with a phenomenal ring IQ. It’s going to take a mighty special fighter and team with the perfect game plan to beat him.

  • Goodman fought well with a damaged hand. Great fight. He deserves his chance against the Monster.

    Wilson was behind on the scorecards before that brutal left hook. What a punch!

    Barry Hall was never a rugby player. An exceptional AFL player. For his own well being, he should not be in a boxing ring.

    • Barry hall got stage fright. Shit the gear when he saw the crowd. Just a circus. Absolute joke along with all the footy players. Only footy player to succeed is Choc Mundine.

  • Goodman can put any crying baby to sleep. One of the most boring fighters to watch. Inoue puts him too sleep inside 4 rounds. And No limit promotions PPV Charging 59.95 to watch that. Wow. Lucky I watched highlights. Crawford PPV way cheaper and more exciting. But gotta give credit. Don’t matter how he wins, boring or exciting he is undefeated and doesn’t dodge any fighter.

  • Its a shame Goodman knocked back a fight against Casimero!, Prob the only guy who stops Inoue in the division.

  • George Kambosos next for Liam Wilson? It would be a all Australian crowd pleaser I believe. A crossroads fight for both.

  • Goodman is borderline top 10 in the division. How he gets ranked number one challenger is a mystery. He has no power and he has nothing special that Inoue has not already come up against with the likes of Nery , Tapales, Fulton , Donaire or Maloney.
