Stamford Boxing Club's Mohammed Sameer defeats Kearon Thomas in his second professional bout on the MTK Global show at the University of Bolton Stadium




Stamford Boxing Club protégé Mohammed Sameer continued the successful start to his professional career with a unanimous points victory on Friday night.

The 22-year-old was a 40-36 points winner against Kearon Thomas in his second professional bout on the MTK Global show at the University of Bolton Stadium.

It was Sameer's first outing due to the coronavirus pandemic since his professional debut back in December 2019 where he had secured a victory over Scott Hillman at Brentwood in Essex.

Sameer - who has risen through the ranks at the West Street club in Stamford after first joining as a 12-year-old - produced a dominant all-round display against Walsall fighter Thomas.

He started the early stages on the front foot and rarely relinquished control of the contest which was held over four rounds.

Sameer started to find his range as the fight wore on and backed Thomas in the corner several times in the second round with a flurry of punches.

He continued to hold the upper hand in the third round and landed a couple of decent shots as he looked to find a way through Thomas' stubborn defence.

Thomas showed more attacking intent in the fourth and final round, but he rarely troubled Sameer who again took the plaudits from the officials to secure back-back professional wins.

Sameer fights under the wing of prestigious boxing management firm MTK Global and is coached by former WBA Continental super lightweight title holder Tommy Martin.
