Wigglesworth on the Warpath

Former National ABA champion Matthew ‘warpath’ Wigglesworth made a winning start to his professional career at Doncaster Dome recently. Now fighting at light-middleweight after winning his national title at 75kg, Matt earned a second round TKO victory. Wigglesworth rewarded the Doncaster crowd with the only stoppage of the night against durable opponent Vladimir Fecko. Stefy Bull, Matt’s promoter, assembled a great show of local talent with former Commonwealth champion Jason Cunningham winning the English belt as headline act.

Living in Newport, a village close to Hull, Matt first decided to train at St.Pauls ABC having already experienced the amateur game in Canada. Matt then moved rival Hull gym Vulcan. At Vulcan, Matt changed his style from a brawler to a boxer and achieved great success winning a National title. Deciding to turn over soon after, Stefy Bull quickly snapped up the ‘village headbanger’. Wigglesworth’s lifelong dream came true when he stepped into the professional ring for the first time on the 27th February.

It did not take long for Matt to get into full flow, working the jab nicely in the first round. In the second, ‘warpath’ Wigglesworth excited his supporters by buckling Fecko’s legs when predatory like leaping on a defensive mistake. He then landed a series of powerful shots provoking the refereee to jump in and update the Czech Republic fighter’s record to 10 wins and 79 losses. A successive start leads to a possible second outing in May.

Whilst building his support and record alongside trainer Niall Almond, Matt will be striving for further honours very soon. The 24 year old villager is certainly one to watch at light-middleweight.
