Nottingham Super Lightweight Chalks up Fourth Consecutive Victory in Ring
One of the rising stars of the professional boxing scene, Super Lightweight Paul ‘the Meatball’ Thompson notched up another victory on Saturday night (May 18th) to continue his undefeated run. Since his professional debut in September 2018, Thompson has chalked up a string of victories and has continued his unbeaten record with 4 professional victories in 4 fights.
With Saturday’s fight taking place at Bingham Leisure Centre in Nottinghamshire, Thompson, 27, saw himself pitted against Sheffield’s Qasim Hussain. Fighting as a Welterweight for that match only, due to an opponent change, Thompson beat Hussain with a unanimous points victory, winning each round. Speaking about his victory, Thompson stated “People said I was pushing my luck going for 4 wins in a row but I live and breathe boxing and I know just how much I am training and preparing for each fight because I know just how much I want this. When I was at school I had a budding athletic career, which I gave up because I was advised to get a trade instead so I know how it feels to give up on a dream and I have no intention of doing so again so I’m going to work as hard as I need to, to succeed. ”. Thompson’s preparations included a week training at the Fuerte Gym in Fuerteventura with his team, DCT (Dreams Come True), based in Radford, Nottingham. He said “Being able to train where the top professional fighters train was amazing, a real eye opener, and just helped build my determination to succeed”.
Beginning his boxing career in the military, where he toured Afghanistan for 7 months in 2013, Thompson’s had an unbeaten amateur career fighting under the EBF (European Boxing Federation) before his professional debut in Nottingham on September 15th 2018.
