Lyon Woodstock stretches unbeaten run to six in Liverpool
Lyon Woodstock Jr (6-0, 3KO) defeats Ibrar Riyaz for the second time in three months with a 40-36 points victory at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
It was déjà vu for Woodstock as he discovered he would be fighting against the same opponent he fought in his last bout back in December, Journeyman Ibrar Riyaz.
Last time out it finished 40-36 on points to the Leicester man, and with a new pair of trunks and a bright, new haircut this time, it was ‘The King’ who prevailed again with the scorecard reading 40-36.
As ever, the knockout was on Woodstock’s mind as he came out all-guns-blazing in the first round. The shots came raining down onto Riyaz and there was not much coming back from the journeyman as he just simply was not being given any room to breath.
Riyaz had some success of his own in the middle rounds but Lyon looked comfortable all through-out and was never troubled with what Riyaz had to offer; whatever Riyaz landed, Woodstock would come back with something twice as hard and in bigger numbers
Woodstock looked very relaxed and was enjoying his self in the fourth and final round. Working the majority of the round on the back foot and showed off some smart footwork as he nicely counter and moved.
The showboating began late on from Woodstock as he cruised to the final bell with a smile on his face. Despite not getting the knockout victory, it was still a very impressive victory for the young Leicester man in front of the Boxnation cameras for all to see.
Now with a professional record that reads 6-0, 3KO, Woodstock will now be looking to carry on pushing up the domestic ranks. For what we have seen so far, Lyon Woodstock Jr has got a very bright future ahead of him.
