Albion Park’s rising boxing star, Sam Goodman, secured a hard-fought victory against Chainoi ‘Rock Man’ Worawut in Wollongong‘s recent bout, although not without consequence. The match, held at the WIN Entertainment Centre, saw Goodman prevail but sustain a significant left hand injury during the fourth round.

Goodman, with a pristine 19-0 record, remains unbeaten and is currently the IBF and WBO world no.1 super featherweight contender. The 25-year-old Australian now sets his sights on a potential world title face-off against the formidable Japanese boxer, Naoya ‘The Monster’ Inoue.

Amidst the exhilarating bout, Worawut, hailing from Thailand, proved to be a resilient opponent, pushing Goodman to his limits over the full 12 rounds. Despite Goodman’s hand injury, sustained early on, the Aussie fighter persevered through discomfort to claim victory.

Following the match, Goodman acknowledged his hand injury, indicating a potential fracture. Nevertheless, he expressed hope that the injury would not impede his anticipated showdown with Inoue later this year. Determined and undaunted, Goodman vowed to get the injury assessed promptly.

The Wollongong showdown between Goodman and Worawut captivated the crowd, with supporters rallying behind the homegrown talent throughout the intense contest. The atmosphere was electric, with fans echoing chants of ‘oh Sammy Goodman’ to the beat of ‘Seven Nation Army‘ by The White Stripes.

Notable mentions in the boxing realm included Curtis Scott‘s commanding victory over Barry Hall in an NRL vs. AFL clash. Scott, a former Melbourne Storm and Canberra Raiders player, demonstrated impressive prowess, securing a decisive knockout against the formidable Hall within the first round.

Scott’s resounding win reignited speculation about a potential future bout with Sonny Bill Williams, another prominent figure in the boxing circuit. Expressing confidence and ambition, Scott aimed high, calling out Williams for a showdown, setting the stage for potential future matchups in the boxing arena.
