Dave Coldwell Backs Maxi Hughes To Rebound Well

Despite watching his young charge receive the sour end of a 98-94 verdict on Saturday evening against Blackpool’s Scott Cardle, Dave Coldwell remains confident that Maxi Hughes can put the maiden loss of his career to good use and rebound well from it in the new season. Hughes took a significant step up in class at a congested Winter Gardens in Blackpool but his performance received wide acclaim amongst the boxing community and Coldwell is aiming to build on it.

“This was a fight that I thought Maxi was ready for and I think I was proven right because he gave a really solid account of himself,” said Coldwell. “Going to Blackpool and beating Scott Cardle was always going to be a hard task but I thought Maxi could do it and I knew that there was no way he’d disgrace himself. Even though Maxi didn’t get the nod from the official, I think it’s safe to say that he left a good impression on the audience and that his future is certainly a bright one.”

With Coldwell’s immediate radar dominated by a cluster of shows taking part in Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool in the coming weeks, Hughes’ return to action is not likely to take place until September. With the experience of a hectic ten rounds under his belt, Coldwell expects his young fighter to be operating to be operating at title class in the near future after missing out on the lightweight Central Area gong at the weekend.

“To go ten rounds for the first time the way Maxi did shows you just how serious he prepared for the fight and the experience of fighting a good fighter over a good distance in his opponent’s backyard shows me that Maxi is ready for the next stage of his career. Maxi deserves a good rest now because a lot into that fight both physically and mentally so after a small break, we’ll be looking to push him on in the new season.”
