Jones stops Naz Wannabe


Chasetown’s Luke Jones put on a great display of boxing stopping the unbeaten Muheeb Fazeldin (13-1-0) in 2 minutes 2 seconds of the second round live on BT sports (10,10,20). Queensberry promotions hot prospect Fazeldin (27) was born in Yemen and resides in Sheffield and has styled himself on his favorite fighter Prince Naseem Hamed and was looking to put a great display on against Jones but no one had told Jones the script.

Jones started the first round well closing the gap down and banging in some good shots, Fazeldin just seemed to be having a look at Jones who won the round. In the second Jones continued to press and rough up Fazeldin, Jones never let Fazeldin set himself and who was caught with some cracking hooks and was out on his feet when the ref jumped in to stop the fight.


Dexter’s Thoughts

What a performance by Jones, I’m sure Queensberry promotions thought this would be a test for there hot prospect but not to this extent. I last saw Jones fight James Beech jr for the Midlands area title where he lost a close fight on points so I knew he would not just go through the motions in this fight. Jones put it on Fazeldin from the start and who did not have and answer it, Fazeldin showboating just seemed to make Jones win even sweeter as he upset the apple cart with this win. Jones has proved on a big stage that he is a talented fighter and he will hopefully get some bigger fights on the back of this performance.
