Craig 'Spider' Richards Extends Unbeaten StreakCraig 'Spider' Richards has started his professional boxing career with great confidence and excellent results.
Having started in 2015 with a Technical Knockout victory over fellow British boxer James Child, Richards has not looked back.
That win was the beginning of a great start to life in the squared circle for Richards and having enjoyed several other victories, including a points win over the undefeated Alan Higgins in March this year, Richards was eying up a fight against only his second overseas boxer.
On 1st July 2017, Craig 'Spider' Richards met Portuguese boxer Rui Manuel Pavanito at the O2 Arena. This was the second fight for Richards at the huge setting in London and it was a massive night of boxing, with many fights scheduled by promoter Matchroom Boxing.
The contest was set for six 3-minute rounds and while Pavanito was a dangerous opponent this was a fight Richards knew he could win.
Having not fought since March, there was a slight worry Richards may be under cooked but having had his fight in June cancelled, the 'Spider' was fully prepared having trained hard. It didn't take long for Richards to get into the driving seat and he took control of the early exchanges against his Portuguese opponent.
Richards' was using his excellent jab to good effect to keep Pavanito at bay in the opening rounds of the fight. This left the Portuguese with little option but to open up and in the third round he came forward, landing some over the top shots.
However, this seemed to spur Richards into life and the London based boxer came out in the fourth round landing several good shots which sapped the energy from Pavanito. Richards was in a great position and perhaps allowed his concentration to slip a little in the closing stages which allowed Pavanito to apply some late pressure.
It was too little too late from the Portuguese and as the bell signalled the end of the contest, there was only one winner and Richards took the victory on points.
There was never any doubt from the start of the fight that Richards was in control but he would have been a little disappointed not to have won more convincingly. However, as a young boxer coming through the ranks, these are the lessons which will prove invaluable and Richards will be sure not to take his foot off the gas in later fights, even if he is in control.
The straight shots of Richards were particularly impressive and will give him great confidence going forward.
At the time of writing there is nothing on the schedule for Richards but rest assured he will be in the gym working hard, ready to defeat his next opponent.
