Big Brother contestant Daley Ojuederie signs three year deal with Goodwin

Daley Ojuederie

Daley 'Star' Ojuederie (3-0-1) has returned from his Big Brother experience ready to launch a serious assault on the super-middleweight division after signing a three year deal with Goodwin Promotions.

Following a meeting with trainer Don Charles and promoter/manager Steve Goodwin,  Daley is ready to launch his career starting on the 16th November Goodwin card at the York Hall.

“It was a no brainer to sign with Steve” said Daley. “You only have to see what he has done with  Ian Lewison, Richard Commey (who is due to contest the Commonwealth title in his next fight) and many others to see what he can do.

“I am now fully focused on my boxing career. Going into Big Brother has helped create a fan base for me who I am sure will turn out in force for me in November and I thank every single one of them in advance for helping me on the road to what I believe will be my destiny with a British title and beyond."

Trainer Don Charles was delighted with the team-up: “I know Steve Goodwin not only through boxing but as a friend and he will look after Daley and make sure we make the right ongoing decisions."

Steve Goodwin finished by saying: “I would like to thank Daley  for putting his faith in me. I will help him achieve everything he wants. We just need consistency now and activity. He is extremely talented and I cannot wait to see Daley back in action on 16th November."

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
