There’s only one Warren Sinden

Created on 30/06/2013 @ 16:07


Welshpool boxer Warren Sinden promised to put on a show for his travelling faithful, and he didn’t disappoint by winning his professional return to the ring in style.

The 23-year-old, cheered on by 150 vociferous fans who turned the Birmingham HMV Institute last night (Saturday) into a corner of Welshpool, showed no signs of ring rust despite his first fight for 18 months.

Facing the highly rated Zimbabwe fighter Disney Huni and with the fans’ chant of “There’s only one Warren Sinden” ringing in his ears, the Welshpool star, known as Big Rig, took command of the fight early on and dominated large parts of the four three-minute rounds.

He had his opponent rocking on his feet as early as the first round with a string of combinations and took his superiority into the second round looking for a grandstand knock-out.

But Huni kept coming forward and matched the Welshpool fighter blow-for-blow in round three before Sinden finished strongly with an accomplished fourth round display.

He won comfortably on points and could fight next as soon as September on a bill in Liverpool. This morning, Sinden was quick to praise his support.

“It was unbelievable and the promoter said that Welshpool stole the show, which I promised him we would,” said Sinden. “I wanted to put on a show for my supporters and I delivered. I prepared by sparring with some of the best fighters in Birmingham and it helped when I came into the ring. Disney was a strong opponent. I couldn’t believe how he kept coming back after catching him with some heavy early blows.

“I got a bit impatient and wanted to finish it but overall I stuck to the plan. I couldn’t have prepared any better.”

Sinden, who is supported by local businessmen John Langford and James Potter, said that he could hear the support from all corners of the venue which gave him a standing ovation at the final bell.

Today he is nursing a sore knuckle but expects to be back in training with Mark Wall and Mike Harrington after a week off.

“I have had a difficult 18 months since my last fight in Preston but I feel last night put all that behind me and I can look forward with a lot of confidence,” he said.

The fight was the first of a possible 10 fights for his new promoter Marcus Anderson-Hitchen from Its-a-bout-Boxing.
