In an electrifying night of boxing in Wollongong, Australian super bantamweight sensation Sam Goodman showcased his dominance against a resilient Mark Schleibs. The event at the WIN Entertainment Centre captivated fans as Goodman asserted his status as the No. 1 contender in the division.

From the opening bell, Schleibs, under the guidance of former world champion Nonito Donaire, came out swinging with a wild left hook. However, it was Goodman who dictated the pace, relentlessly pursuing Schleibs and unleashing blistering combinations to the delight of his loyal supporters, ‘The Mad Bunch’.

Former world champion Barry Michael and Main Event’s Ben Damon highlighted Goodman’s newfound aggression during the showdown. Michael praised Goodman’s performance as the best he had witnessed, while Damon noted this aggressive side was a new dimension to Goodman’s fighting style.

Goodman’s intensity peaked in the third round, almost prompting Schleibs’ corner to consider throwing in the towel. Despite a tough showing, Schleibs was unable to withstand Goodman’s relentless assault, leading to the referee stopping the fight in the fourth round.

The victory propels Goodman towards a shot at the world title in the super bantamweight division. He expressed a desire for the opportunity to take place in his hometown and set his sights on potential matchups with top fighters like Naoya Inoue.

Meanwhile, in a surprising turn of events, Endry Saavedra secured a stoppage victory over Issac Hardman for the WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight Title. Additionally, Curtis Scott made an impressive pro boxing debut, knocking out Joey Leilua in the second round.
