Richards Back With A Bang

Light-Heavyweight Craig Richards Back To Winning Ways


Defeat is never the end, it is how you deal with a defeat that shapes anything you do in life. Craig Richards proved his mental toughness this evening as he was able to halt Ivan Stupalo in just three rounds this evening at London's O2 Arena.

The last time we saw Richards in the ring he suffered his first professional defeat against current British Champion, Frank Buglioni. It has to be said that Richards took the fight at incredibly short notice as Buglioni's original opponent was forced to pull out with a chest injury, and Richard did fight valiantly to a unanimous decision loss. With the light-heavyweight scene in Britain beginning to bloom, Richards won't be short of an opponent or two.Perhaps a fight against fellow Matchroom stablemate, Hosea Burton might well be on the cards.
