Craig Richards is an experienced British boxer who has been in the professional boxing ring for over six years. Richards made his debut into professional boxing on May 28, 2015, in a fight against James Childs, where he won via a 1st round TKO. Since then, he has gone on to have an impressive record of 17 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw, and 0 no-contests with 10 of those wins coming via knockout.
Richards has been in a total of 21 fights so far and has never been stopped in any of his losses, which all came via decision. In his career, he has had the opportunity to fight some notable boxers, such as Shakan Pitters, Ivan Stupalo, and Marek Matyja. One of his most significant fights was his world title fight against Dmitry Bivol on May 1, 2021, where he lost via a 12-round unanimous decision.
Despite not having won a world title yet, Richards' professional record is impressive nonetheless. With his 17 wins, he has been able to defeat boxers such as Norbert Szekeres, Michal Ludwiczak, and Jake Ball, to mention a few.
Richards has been able to showcase his skills as a boxer through his knockout wins. Out of all his 17 wins, he has won ten fights by knockout, implying that he is not just a skilled boxer but also a fighter with power. This power is demonstrated in fights such as his first win via knockout against Marian Bogdanovic in November 2015 and his win against Norbert Szekeres in May 2019.
Furthermore, Richards' most recent fight was against Joshua Buatsi on May 21, 2022, in a non-title bout. Richards lost the fight via unanimous decision after going twelve rounds with Buatsi. However, this one-fight losing streak should not discredit all of Richards' previous wins and his capabilities as a boxer. In fact, his next scheduled fight on April 1, 2023, against Ričards Bolotņiks will be an excellent opportunity for him to show his fans and critics that he is still a force to be reckoned with.
In conclusion, Craig Richards has had a successful career in boxing so far. He has shown his expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness as a boxer.
