BOXING: Joe's back with a bang
9:59am Monday 4th June 2012 in Wiltshire Sport
MALMESBURY fighter Joe Hughes got back on winning form in explosive style in Gloucester on Saturday evening.
Light-wealterweight Hughes, who lost his first professional fight on points to Joe Elfidh in Sheffield in March, stopped Tamworth's Matt Seawright at the end of the second round at Gloucester's GL1 Leisure Centre.
Boxing on a Keith Mayo Promotions card, Hughes - who is usually promoted by Frank Maloney - wasted no time in getting back to his best against his Tamworth opponent, who had drawn with Westbury's Aaron Fox in Trowbridge eight days previously.
Former senior ABA champion Hughes, 21, caught his rival with a left hook which drew blood from Seawright's nose in the secnd round and, after being examined in his corner, the Midlands man was unable to continue.
