Floyd Moore signs with Goodwin

Former Southern Area Lightweight Champion Floyd “Pac Man” Moore is the latest to put pen to paper and sign a three year deal with Steve Goodwin.

Moore won the Southern Area title in December 2012 when stopping Ryan Taylor in 4 rounds at the Excel Arena. Six months passed before Moore made his first defence where he lost a very close decision to Adam Dingsdale.

“Inactivity cost me “ says Moore “I only had a 4 ½ week training camp for the Adam fight. I need a fight plan and Steve has given me a four fight plan starting at 20 September in Portsmouth. I then will be out three weeks later at York Hall. November/December back at York Hall and then back to Portsmouth in March 2015 headlining a big show. This is what fighters want. This will keep me focused in the gym as I know what my plans are and when I will be boxing.”

Goodwin said “We are delighted to welcome Floyd to the team. The Goodwin team will now be promoting in Portsmouth as well as London and Floyd will box at both venues as we build him towards titles. We will be working intensively alongside Floyd and his trainer Michael Ballingall helping Michael with his Portsmouth boxers as well as Floyd.”

Floyd said “It was an easy decision to make. He is the manager/promoter that is improving fast and has a plan for every boxer”

Goodwin finished by saying “Floyd is one of the most improved boxers in the UK. When you consider he lost to Johnny Greaves on his debut and ended up winning the Southern Area title at the Excel Arena he has shown guts and determination. At only 23 there is substantial improvement still to come and we will help Floyd realise his potential.
