Ryan Waters wins in 1
By Paul Upham in Sutherland: Cronulla junior middleweight Ryan Waters made short work of Ade Alfons on Saturday night with a 1st round TKO win, headlining his own Left Hook Promotions card at the Sutherland United Services Club in Sydney.
The WBO Oriental junior middleweight title holder landed a left hand which propped Alfons’ head up and the following right hook landed flush on the jaw, dropping the Indonesian to the canvas. Regaining his feet on unsteady legs, 31 year-old Alfons was wobbling against the ropes and referee Les Fear ended the fight at the 2:59 minute mark.
“I wish it could have gone a little longer,” Waters told the sell out crowd. “I want to thank all you guys for coming tonight. This year is going to be a big one for us.”
31 year-old Waters 14-2-1 (9) then talked up a potential fight with 24 year-old local junior middleweight arch rival Junior Talipeau 12-0 (4).
“Hopefully we have got a meeting with Junior Talipeau this week and we will put a good offer to him,” said Waters. “If he backs out, he’ll be missing out on the best offer he has ever heard. I want to get that fight this year. I’d love to get that fight on. I’ll tell you what. I would walk to Burke backwards in the nude, if I lose that fight. I promise you.”
