Showdown At York Hall

Mihail Mitov reports a=on a busy night of top boxing coming to East London.

On November 25th, the iconic York Hall will play host to a boxing gala full of mouth-watering matchups, with the main event between Wadi Camacho and Jose Lopes for the Southern Area Cruiserweight Title promoted by Goodwin Boxing.

The undercard also stars seven-fight novice duo Darrel Church and Jordan Joseph, who will battle it out for the Light Heavyweight Southern Area Title. Also, Justin Menzie is looking to turn round his adverse run of form as he battles the experienced Ryan Toms for the British Super Welterweight Challenge Belt.

The bill will consist of a colossal 19 fights including debuts from Yaser Al Ghena, Conroy Downer and Prince Brady.


Southern Area Cruiserweight champion, Wadi Camacho will defend his title against the undefeated Jose Lopes. Despite losing two of his last four fights, the Spanish-born slugger is certain he will wipe Lopes out on the hunt for greater glory;

“I am going to win this fight by a knock out one-hundred percent.” He told Goodwin Promotions. “Macho is back! I just want big fights after this, or more titles”

The champion, who is originally from Barcelona and is a southpaw, decided to represent the United Kingdom in his professional career and is the favourite according to the bookies due to his experience in the ring.

Jose Lopes on the other hand is a young British prospect getting his first title shot in his 10th professional fight. Lopes, who last fought Milan Cechvala in August has had eight of his nine professional fights so far at the York Hall in Bethnal Green.

The contest for the Southern Area Cruiserweight Title will be 10 rounds.


The fight before Camacho and Lopes is the Church vs Joseph eliminator for the Light Heavyweight Southern Area Title.

Jordan Joseph (6-1-1) who began his career in 2014 under Steve Goodwin’s promotion fought for the same title back in March and lost to a close 97-95 decision against fellow Brit Chris Hobbs.

The London-born pugilist who lives in Hertfordshire is currently being trained by the experienced Don Charles.

Joseph won’t have it easy though, he will face Essex born Darrel Church, who has an identical record, losing only once from seven contents.

28-year-old Church last fought in October at the Brentwood Centre where he breezed to a points victory against the experienced Darren Snow.

The fight will be sanctioned by the British Boxing Board of Control and scheduled for 10 rounds.

Justin ‘The Genie’ Menzie is fighting experienced Ryan Toms for the British Super Welterweight Challenge Belt.

Menzie, who lost his last bout against Diego Burton in July is looking to bounce back against Toms who is a former Southern Area Super Welterweight champion and a former English Super Welterweight challenger.

Toms, who is 15-14-3, showed he was still a dangerous fighter after a decisive stoppage of Germany’s huge punching Arthur Hermann in July.


In a Super Welterweight battle, Daniel Spencer will fight 19-year-old prospect Ricky Heavens, who looks to continue his unbeaten record to five unbeaten with one draw.

Fight fans will also see 25-year-old unbeaten Ryan Walker against former southern area champion Jamie Speight in a featherweight contest.

Kyle McCarthy will also step into the ring for the second time in his career against Joe Beedon in the Super Featherweight Division.

Tickets can be purchased from the official Goodwin Promotions website.
