Thomas Paull is now 11-3, with a 100% finishing rate following a viral KO of Perry Goodwin at GTFP 18 this weekend.
GTFP Double Champ
Since his last defeat, Paull has bounced back with two victories, claiming gold in each. First, finishing Mario Saeed for the 74kg belt, and now 70kg champion after shutting out Goodwin in the first round. Perry Goodwin is no easy comer, having challenged for Cage Warriors gold before. The two men started the fight with instant pressure being applied from both sides. Paull then separated the action with a leg kick before coming back in for more, landing that fatal left hook.
Goodwin was unconscious for several minutes before he was able to wake up, which made for a scary sight for those watching. The medical staff handled everything perfectly, and the referee in charge of the action stepped in to ensure no further damage.
