Ryder Blows Away Cox In Two

Cox Crumbles Again As Ryder Scores A Second-Round KO

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

John Ryder has gone from strength to strength in recent months. The man who had lost three prior British title fights in his career has put said career firmly back on track by producing a career highlight reel knockout against Jamie Cox, whose own career now hangs on by a thread. 

At the opening of the first bell, Cox tried to take the centre of the ring. Sometimes it can get a bit messy when two southpaws .meet in the ring. But they spent the opening stanza trying to find their range., Ryder took the round as he clearly enjoyed early success on the inside with his short, sharp hooks.

The second round saw both men exchange shots. But a clipping hook to the temple saw Cox collapse to the canvas albeit after a delayed reaction. Cox seemed dazed and confused, he did rise to his feet. But it was at the count of ten and the fight was called off. It was clear that despite his protests Cox was unable to continue.

Ryder told Sky Sports "I think we're having a real Indian summer here," said Cox."It was the right shot for me, the wrong shot for him. He was down. I was just thinking stay down, please. The referee called it right I believe."

This fight will do wonders for Ryder's world ranking, and with so many world level super-middleweights out there right now. It will not be too long before we could see Ryder in an even bigger fight.
