Jumah enjoys emphatic win in Germany

first_imgDeion Jumah made an emphatic return to the ring by stopping Josef Krivka in the second round in Oldenburg, Germany.Out of action for more than a year because of injury and illness, the 25-year-old West Londoner – twice an ABA champion – was also fighting for the first time at light-heavyweight, having decided to move down from cruiserweight.His strength was evident as he floored his Czech opponent four times before the referee eventually called a halt to the contest.Jumah, trained by George Groves’ former coach and manager Adam Booth, has won his first four professional bouts at a canter and this was his second stoppage.“It’s great to be back and I was really pleased with my performance,” he said.“I would have liked to have been in there longer. I wasn’t looking for the stoppage, but I can’t complain.“There were certain shots I wanted to land. I had a lot of success with the left uppercut to the body.“In the second round I decided to change it up. I caught him with a right hook, left cross to the head, he went down, and the referee decided to call it a night. Now it’s on to the next one.”See also:Jumah set for British pro debutFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
