Cab­bie keeps up win­ning record at Wem­b­ley

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

LON­DON taxi driver Dean Richard­son kept up his win­ning streak by beat­ing Slo­vakia’s An­drej Mo­ravek on the un­der­card of Ge­orge Groves’ world ti­tle de­fence at Wem­b­ley Arena. Richard­son, from South Ruis­lip, took two rounds to take out his op­po­nent af­ter floor­ing him twice, both times com­ing from right hooks to the head. The 22-year-old im­proved his 100 per cent record to five wins with no losses and all vic­to­ries by way of knock­outs. In the main event of the night, Groves re­tained his world ti­tle by beat­ing Swin­don’s Jamie Cox with a body shot in the fourth round to ad­vance to the semi-fi­nals of the World Box­ing Su­per Se­ries.
