Ringer Ding Ding! UK Boxer Poochi Poetsch Wins Weirdest Fight of the Year So Far

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

In the grand tradition of 300 bout perennial loser and ringer Peter Buckley (who won his last bout), British light heavyweight ringer Lewis ‘Poochi’ van Poetsch has fought the Real Combat Media weirdest and stupidest fight of 2019 so far-a bout which took place that defies any legitimate purpose or logic other than to sell tickets to a cheap show.

A tremendous sense of humor is necessary to understand the wild side of pro boxing.

Van Poetsch, with 8 wins, 91 losses, and one draw, Lydney, Gloucester, United Kingdom, 28 years old, has now recorded 100 pro bouts, since turning pro in November 2012 with a six round decision win over Arturs Geikins at the G1 Leisure Centre in Gloucester.

Ringer ding ding! Van Poetsch, a loser of 37 straight, with six more bouts scheduled in the next two months, kept it rolling along. British matchmakers did it weird and stupid on February 2, 2019, at Holte Suite, Villa Park, Birmingham, as Poetsch won an ‘impressive’ four-round decision over 0-36 super middleweight veteran Scott Hillman of Eastbourne, Sussex.

Bouts and cards like these constitute sadistic ridiculous entertainment. One might argue it’s whatever sells tickets. Enjoy the show.

Also on the card, West Midlands super welterweight southpaw M.J. Hall, winless in 30 pro bouts, fought the next bout on the seven-bout card, and lost to 1-0 Nathan Bendon. Not to worry, 2-0-1 British lightweight Waqas Mohammed managed to lose a four-round decision to 1-8 Cheshire super featherweight ‘prospect’ Michael Horobin on the same card. We hope the spectators enjoyed the show of winners versus losers, ha ha, whatever that means.
