Rising Belvedere Featherweight star ‘Saint’ George Jupp is set for his first outing of the year at the Steve Goodwin promoted quadruple headline ‘Essex Eruption’ event at the Goresbrook Leisure Centre in Dagenham on Saturday 15th March 2011.
George, whose professional record is a perfect three wins out of three outings, is proving to be one of the most exciting new prospects to emerge from Johnny Eames’ Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town in recent times, as the man himself makes clear, having recently stated. “George is potentially the best boy we’ve got in the gym at the moment, with a view to how far he can go.
Anything can happen in boxing, but if he carries on the way he is at least British Champion without a shadow of doubt.”
As if to prove the point, Johnny Eames was happy for George to take an early rematch, in December, with tough Mansfield based Latvian Pavels Senkovs.
Back in September George gave Senkovs a boxing master class to secure a clear 40-36 points victory.
This time around though Senkovs had revenge on his mind, big time. Right from the opening bell Senkovs went straight on the attack, George used his brain and stayed out of a slugging match, instead responding with solid jabs and accurate left-rights to keep the Latvian at bay.
George frustrated the ever forward pushing Senkovs with his superior boxing skills round after round. Half way through the final round, just as Senkovs mounted yet another forceful attack, George countered with a powerful left-right combination to the head, which stopped Senkovs in his tracks and opened a deep cut over his left eye. Within seconds referee Jeff Hines spotted the blood gushing from the wound and jumped in and stopped the fight with just over a minute of the bout remaining to present George with the first stoppage win of his fledgling career.
Earlier today, following sparring with three of Graham Earl’s Irish fighters over for training camp in preparation for his April 2nd Belfast show, George spoke about his upcoming fight as well as the Jupp-Senkovs II battle, “Just over a week to go now, I can’t wait. I’ve been training hard and yeah can’t wait to fight now.
I enjoyed my last fight, I got him out of there. He’s a really strong character but I stuck with my boxing to try and keep him long. I caught him with a few flush one-twos and cut his eye. It was a good stoppage that, it’s good to have a stoppage on the card as well.
I’m hoping to out as much as I can, keep on boxing and as long as I’m winning then I’ll be happy. Anything that Johnny (manager and co-trainer Johnny Eames) wants me to do then I’m ready for. Yeah, keep winning.”
