Jobo gets the job done

Daniel Jobson wins boxing match by unanimous decision

Daniel Jobson training pre-fight

Picture this - you are six foot, 88kg, and you’ve only fought in one competitive fight in the past. You then get told that in your second career fight, about four months since your first, you have to go up against someone who is 117kg and about six foot three.

That would be enough to scare most people, or at least leave them slightly concerned. But not Daniel Jobson.

Jobo, as he is well-known around town, in fact relished the opportunity.

He told The Courier just weeks before his fight that he expected to win.

And he delivered.

Jobson went toe-to-toe with Dubbo boxer Grant Armstrong in Narromine on Saturday night, and defeated him via a unanimous decision following three tough rounds.

Each round went for two minutes.

Armstrong put two significant shots on Jobson, but the Narrabri boxer recovered to win that round as well as the next two.

“He had a bit over me with weight, reach and height,” Jobson said.

“I was still pretty confident, and even when I got in the ring it didn’t worry me.

“He come out pretty fast in the first round and put two good shots on me which stunned me a little bit.

“I then put a few good shots on him in the second round and he got a bit wobbly and was grabbing hold of me.

“But I went on two win those two rounds and the third which was good.”

Jobson could be back in action again as early as next month.

He will most likely line up for a bout in Gunnedah on April 7.

He said he would then set his sights on the novice titles in June.

Jobson’s Old School boxing teammates Jarrod Adams, Jackson Walsh and Zac Hobden were also in action on Saturday.
