On the under-card at the O2 Arena, in London, on Saturday night, Joshua Buatsi continued his impressive start to his professional career.

The 24-year-old was matched against Jordan Joseph in his fourth professional fight.

Buatsi, who boxed at the 2016 Rio Olympics, showed his class by registering fourth straight win.

The end came in the second round when a huge right hand had Joseph in all sorts of trouble, sensing that Joseph was in danger of getting badly hurt, the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

Talking to the media afterwards, Buatsi had this to say about his performance,

‘There’s a crowd here, a nervous energy for me, so people I wanted to entertain.

‘It’s been a while since I last fought, I had a few minor injuries but this fight showed that both my hands are now OK.’

As for his promoter, Eddie Hearn, he was quick to point out that Buatsi has a bright future in the sport, proclaiming,

‘If he doesn’t become a world champion we have failed or someone has failed. He will light up this arena for many years to come. Nothing can stop him. He has it all.’

That could well be the case, he is indeed a special talent and one that we here, at Vital Boxing, will follow closely.
