Daryl proves he's Still a tough man to beat
8:00am Sunday 3rd October 2010 in Sport
FLEMING Park in Eastleigh once again proved to be happy hunting ground for South Ham professional boxer Darryl Still.
Back in April, the boxer outpointed Aaron Fox and on Saturday evening Londoner Bekhi Moyo went the same way as Still won all four rounds of his welterweight fight to record a 40-36 success.
The victory was even more impressive as the Basingstoke fighter had got out of his sick bed to fight having been suffering from a virus all week.
Still said: “I was thinking of pulling out as I felt ill all week. Even in the warm-up I did not feel like my punches had enough power in them, but once I heard my music going into the ring I felt fine and was really pleased with the win.”
His opponent is known to look for the knock-out, but in the second round a straight right from Still saw the Londoner hit the canvas.
He got up to continue, but from then on there was only going to be one winner.
Still, who trains with Wayne Batten in Southampton is now looking to get back in the ring by latest in December.
The Basingstoke boxer said: “I enjoyed the fight and felt I controlled it and can’t wait to get back in the ring again “I would like to thank Nigel O’Connor, the Health and Fitness Manager at Fitness First for all his help before the fight as it was a get benefit and made me feel a lot stronger.”
