Duffy in Destructive Mood in Leeds


Shaun ‘The Destroyer’ Duffy was in no mood to mess around as he travelled to Leeds to take on the debutante Yorkshire man Aidan Anderson (6.9.19). Duffy who was coming off a 1st round stoppage defeat himself exploded out for the traps at Anderson banging in heavy shots from the start. The home fighter Anderson could only try and cover up as Duffy used his jab well to set up some heavy handed combinations going from body to head well stopping his opponent in the first round with a cracking uppercut. The Smoking Joe's fighter has now got 2 wins in four fights and has already said he will be fighting again on the road on the 28th September. Duffy will be looking to make it two in a row at the end of the month and if he listens to his coach Shaun Cogan I think he just might.

Shaun took to social media making this Inspirational status, he wrote , 'Would like to thank each and every person for their kind messages of support over the weekend . I'm SHOCKED at the amount of messages from people world wide.

I am pleased with the win as it shows I'm on the right path to what I want to achieve in life I couldn't have wished for any better people around me, a special thank you to all that have approached me and acknowledged the journey .I'm mostly proud of who I've become and I hope all that have been following closely will take positivity from my journey.

Remember Surround yourselves with winners and like minded people, never give up no matter how bad of a start.. Persistence is key Take every experience as a lesson..there is always a positive.you just have to change your way of thinking to find it Better yourself every single day, in any way possible Mentally or physically. Also a huge thank you to the guys who said I CANT, without you I couldn't have done this . ONLY YOURSELF TELLS YOU .ITS IMPOSSIBLE

Dexter’s Thoughts

So chuffed for Shaun Duffy who has trained so hard for this fight. He has really been putting the work in at Smoking Joe’s and has rectified some of the things that have cost him in his defeats. He is a hard hitting heavyweight with a very sharper jab when he uses it and if he continues to listen to his trainer Shaun Cogan I am sure he will be getting his hand raised a lot more in the future. He is back out on the 28th and I’m sure he will be looking to make a point on the road again. The column will be following the ‘Destroyers' journey.
