Redemption was the word of the day last Saturday, 1st July, at The o2 Academy Bournemouth. Sam Jones defeated Chris Adaway in what was a thrilling rematch, and one for the boxing purists to enjoy.
On May 27th, Sam Jones suffered his first professional defeat at the hands of Chris Adaway, at York Hall.
Bournemouth’s Jones was up on the scorecards by some distance, however after the Plymouth based Adaway landed some heavy shots in the final round, Jones was eventually stopped with just seconds remaining in the fight.
For many, time off would be the answer to suffering your first professional defeat, but that was not the case for Assassin boxer, Sam Jones and trainer Ty Browne. The pair got straight back into the gym and targeted a rematch.
The two men were brave enough in the defeat to give an interview to Hellraiser, which is available here.
Just 5 weeks on from the brutal defeat, Sam Jones was once again standing opposite Chris Adaway, as the duo locked horns.
Sam began well, as he used his boxing ability to find his range, planted his feet and picked his shots off. Under the watchful eye of trainer Ty Browne, he wasn’t afraid to counter Adaway.
Adaway attempted to lure Jones into an absolute war, and at times he obliged, however for the most part Jones’ boxing did all of the talking.
Jones sold the most tickets at the show, had a brilliant following on the night, and the atmosphere was electric.
The final rounds came and went, and although Adaway seemed confident when the final bell sounded – it was Sam Jones who had his arm raised as he took the victory 39-37
Kaz Evans, founder of Assassin Boxing said
”This was a risk that Sam took, and not many boxers would face the man who KO’d him, especially not 5 weeks later. Sam proved just how good of a boxer he is. It’s now time to kick on, and I’m already looking forward to a busy time for Sam in the new season”
Ty Browne, Sam Jones’ trainer had to say
”We approached the fight a little differently this time. We wanted to be smarter on the counter and sharpen up our punches. We have a lot of respect for Chris Adaway, he comes to fight. We had a big name mentioned to us, but we wanted to come here and clear up this mess we created with Chris Adaway. We’ve done that and now we want to work our way up the ladder, progress to six rounders, and get in with some big names”.
