Boxing: Four-midable Iain Weaver beats 'monster' to maintain perfect record
IMPERIOUS Iain Weaver continued his unbeaten start to life in professional boxing by beating Hassan Elyatouti in just one minute and 10 seconds on Friday.
The Ferndown fighter, who completed his first six-round success against Michelino Di Mari in London two weeks ago, eased aside the last-minute Moroccan stand-in after his initial opponent had pulled out.
The bout, which took place in Cataluna, Spain, was a short-lived affair with the ‘Blessed One’ registering a comfortable success, but 23-year-old said he was grateful just to get in the ring after his first fight had been cancelled.
Weaver told the Daily Echo: “The other guy pulled out just after we had travelled out there so I needed a fight, and fair play to him (Elyatouti), because he came in and wanted it.
"He was massive, an absolute monster, but I just came out and caught him quite nicely with a couple of body shots early on and he had no response.
“It was a good fight and I was happy to get another win under my belt and finish it all off pretty quickly.”
Meanwhile, Weaver wants to maintain his winning momentum and revealed plans for another clash on the continent next month.
“I am hoping to get another fight in Europe during November as well as another one or two before Christmas,” he added. “I need fights and experience to get up the rankings. I just want to keep fighting and keep winning so I can push for a title next year.”
