European Silver and Commonwealth Boxing Championships Gold medalist Iain Weaver made the long awaited transition to the professional ranks, on Saturday night at the Dave Murphy promoted ‘Thunder & Lightning’ event, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.
Weaver putonwhat can only be described as a truly sensational performance, against Poland’s Damian Lawniczak.
Throughout the enthralling contest Weaver showcased his exceptional skills to an appreciative crowd on way to winning by a shutout 40-36 points margin.

Amongst those at ringside was Gary Hyde, manager of Super Bantamweight king Guillermo Rigondeaux, who was clearly impressed with Weaver’s performance as straight afterwards he began discussions to manage the 23 year old Dorset lad.
Earlier today a clearly happy Weaver spoke of the fight, as well as the possibility of Hyde guiding him through his professional career.

“It was nice to get back into the ring after a year waiting.
I took it easy in the first round, I wanted to feel him out a bit. Stepped it up a bit in the second and started to land some good clean shots, in the last two rounds I started to hurt him a bit so he started to hold more.
He’s very experienced, he gave me a good fight but I feel I put on a good performance, even though I had some ring rust as I haven’t fought in the past year.
It must have been a good performance, because Guillermo Rigondeaux’s manager Gary Hyde, who had flown over to watch me, said he was happy with the performance and said he can do something with me as a manager, so it must have been a good performance.”
