On Friday night Indian fighter Neeraj Goyat (10-3-2, 2) made his Canadian debut, in his first bout as a Lee Baxter Promotions fighter. The talented Indian hopeful was facing off with Mexican foe Ernesto Cardona Sanchez (3-5, 3) and took a 4 round decision victory.
The Indian is the WBC Asian Boxing Council Welterweight title, though that title wasn't on the line.
Goyat boxed well for the most part, showed a touch of excitement and flair, but did admit that he was glads to be back after a big of a break. Apparently he had twice had to cancel bouts in Canada prior to this one due to logistical issues, but it's clear that he is happy to have got the ball rolling and get on with things on Canadian soil
Goyat's win saw him him bouncing back from a June loss in Mexico against Sergio Daniel Moreno Martinez. As for Sanchez this was a was a second loss in 3 bouts, and showed that he really is as limited as his record suggests.
Prior to this bout Goyat has signed a relatively big money deal with Lee Baxter Promotions, and with this win he has began the relationship well. It's now a case of building on it and progressing his career from this win in to bigger and better bouts.
