Mike McGoldrick was very impressed with what he saw from fellow Barrovian Ross Cooksey, as he caught the eye with a stylish performance in what was his first fight for 11 months.

Earlier in the night at the University of Bolton Stadium, McGoldrick was victorious himself, as he comfortably saw off Cambridge's Gianni Antoh to make it four wins from four professional fights.

Cooksey later extended his record to seven fights unbeaten with a points victory of his own against Kent's Ricky Leake, with his movement around the ring catching the eye.

The 26-year-old now trains alongside McGoldrick, as well as Barrow's third boxing pro, Liam Conroy and Ulverston's Ryan Watson under Johnney Roye.

McGoldrick said: "It was good for Ross because he's been out for so long and to come in and look that good. He's so classy to watch and I wish I could some of the stuff that he does.

"He's such a light lad as well, punching from all different angles, especially with Johnney's style of coaching, that's what Johnney likes, getting him to do all the technical stuff, working different angles, switch-hitting, that sort of stuff.

"He's confident in both the orthodox and the southpaw stances and he's had a lot of experience, Ross - he's had 57 amateur fights, so he's seen it all and boxed all sorts of styles, so nothing fazes him."
