Paul Archer is Confident That He Will Bounce Back

Paul Archer insists he will bounce back from his first professional defeat after losing 36-39 against Tony Dixon on October 19.

Easington-man Archer teamed up with his older brother, Ian, as he took on the Welshman at the Rainton Meadows Arena, Houghton-le-Spring, and knows that his only defeat in eight outings is a learning curve.

Archer, 22, was sent to the canvas after two minutes of the first round on the Pro Box North East show following a crushing left hook as he tried to pressure Dixon.

Archer said: “It’s important that I learn from this and make sure that I take everything from the contest.

“We took the fight with a week’s notice and knew it was a step up.

“I am obviously disappointed to lose but I know I will learn from the defeat and come back a better boxer than I was before the fight.

“He is a strong lad and we knew he was game. We could have easily taken a journeyman and learned nothing from the fight and just stayed unbeaten.

“But that’s not what I’m about and I want to move forward in my career.”

Archer came out of the contest with a perforated eardrum following a battling contest against Dixon who has now won all three of his contests including one stoppage.

Archer added: “We knew he would come and have a go and even though there is no footage of him we knew what to expect.

“I’m gutted to have been beaten but there are learning opportunities there now, so we can go back to the drawing board and improve.

“Although I have just been beat, I feel as though I am a better boxer for it.”
