Richardson wins again on second professional outing with another stoppage Thu, 19 May 2016 08:06:57 +0000 Young welterweight Dean Richardson impressed on his second professional outing as he secured a third-round stoppage victory over Ivan Duvancic.

The 20-year-old, who is sponsored by Alexander James, made light work of the Croatian at the iconic boxing venue, York Hall, in Bethnal Green on Saturday.

He made himself known early on, going in with a strong left hand, which made his opponent weary of rushing in wildly.

Richardson, who won 12 of his 16 amateur bouts, was stuck behind his jab and moved well off it as he toyed with Duvancic in the opening round, pushing him onto the ropes.

The second round started in similiar vein, with Richardson coming back out on the front foot, doubling up his jab and forcing the pace of the fight.

Duvancic could only sit on the ropes with a high guard and absorb the pressure. Richardson let his hands go to the body and worked the right hook left hand to perfection.

The rest of the round went by with the south Ruislip boxer in control and firmly on the front foot.

A massive left hand started a flurry of shots from Richardson that knocked Duvancic to the canvas, he managed to make referee Lee Cook’s count, but Richardson jumped straight back onto him behind the jab and didn’t give him time to breathe.

A big right body shot from Richardson sent Duvancic to the canvas again where he had trouble breathing, consequently failing to make referee Cook’s count, as the bout was halted one minute and 12 seconds into the third round – which was Richardson’s second stoppage in as many fights since turning professional in November.

Dean Richardson vs Aleksejs Grustans – 4×3 Welterwight contest

South Ruislip boxer Dean richardson fought his way to a 4th round stoppage over Latvian Alexsejs Grustrans with a powerful and impressive performance. Richardson showed his power early on, letting his left hand go and moving off well after it.  The Latvian stayed on the back foot with a high guard and was no threat in the opening round.  Richardson was in control thought the opening round letting his jab go and constantly pressuring Grustans.

The fight went to a fourth round but was a little cagey in the opening of this round but Richardson got back into his rhythm, walked Grustans down and worked the big left hand with constant pressure.

Richardson landed a big right hook that started a massive flurry of powerful shots from Dean with Grustans unable to reply with anything and he looked in trouble.

Referee Bob Williams stepped in at 2mins31 seconds into the 4th round declaring Dean Richardson the winner.  He held the centre throughout, looked powerful and picked his shots very well – he was in control and was never in any trouble.

Everyone at Alexander James would like to congratulate Dean on this victory and will be watching his career with enthusiasm and interest!  Well done and good luck!
