Taxi driver Richardson becomes new super welterweight Southern Area champion

11 Oct 2019

London cabbie Dean Richardson became the new super welterweight Southern Area champion with a two round destruction of Nathan Graham at York Hall on 28 September.

 



Richardson, now 11-0 with 8 knockouts, finished the fight with a single right hook at close range early into the second round. The first round was cagey, with both fighters feeling their way into the fight, but a few bursts of combinations from Dean edged him the round.



Both fighters came out for the second and the London cabbie took the centre of the ring. Graham lunged in with a right hand to the body and as he wound up for an uppercut, Richardson landed his own right hook. Graham hit the canvas, but managed to get to his feet at the count of six. His legs were unsteady and as he wobbled backwards towards the ropes, the referee waved it off 27 seconds into the round.



 

It was the 24-year-old’s first title as a professional and with the English belt being contested for on the same night, Richardson hopes to defend his Southern Area title or have his own crack at the English early next year.
