12th September 2012
Olivia Goodwin’s debut TV show on Primetime (Sky 498) this Saturday looked in turmoil after the withdrawal of top of the bill Eddie Corcoran due to a back injury.
Corcoran’s clash with Kris Agyei-Dua for the vacant Southern Area light-middleweight title was set to top a bumper bill of 12 fights. Goodwin frantically spent Wednesday trying to secure a replacement and at 7pm that evening Nathan Graham agreed to step in.
“I am so grateful to Nathan and his manager Spencer Fearon for stepping in at late notice,” said Ms Goodwin. “To be honest this is probably an even better fight than the original bout. Nathan is an all-action fighter full of excitement and has fought Junior Witter, Nav Mansouri and Adil Anwar.
“Kris Agyei-Dua has just returned from a training camp in Spain and cannot wait.
“I am so excited about the evening’s boxing,” Goodwin continued. “With the Richard Commey v Kris Hughes and Dillian Whyte fights on the undercard, it promises to be all action.
“My personal fight of the night is our own Lee Markham who takes on knockout artist ‘The Latvian Hammer’ Valerijs Mikaulauskas. The Latvian has knocked out every opponent in one round and wants a fight with Kenny Anderson, George Groves or Chris Eubank. He thinks that Lee Markham is just his pathway to bigger things but Lee believes he will make a statement and send the Latvian back home with his first loss.”
