MISSISSAUGA – Brantford boxer Winston “The Punisher” Matthews (2-2-2) defeated Gregory Miller, Saturday December 16th at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga. Matthews scored an early knock down in the second round which led to a victory by unanimous decision. It was a four-round fight.

“It feels pretty good man,” the boxer said in a calm manner over the phone. “There have been nine boxers from Brantford who have tried to win at the Hershey Centre and I’m the first.”

Matthews, better known locally as Jus Win, made news only four months ago after announcing that he was taking a break from professional boxing after losing a tough match to veteran Jamaican boxer Sakima Mullings.

Local sports critics acknowledge that Matthews could very well be 6-0 by now but it was left to the judges who scored very close matches against difficult opponents that could have went either way.

“I did not want a decision. I really wanted to knock that guy out,” he said. At one point Matthews was warned for talking too much smack by the referee. Matthews explains, “On Facebook (Miller) was saying “Boxer don’t run,” but in the ring he was the one who was running.”

Matthews aggressive fighting style overmatched Miller whose defensive skills weren’t enough to stand against the tide of blows. Although taller in the ring by several inches, Miller seemed to mostly evade Matthews and landed no serious punches.

Afterwards Matthews who had no visible injuries at all celebrated with a few close friends over dinner. “Man I just wanted to eat,” Matthews said about the victory meal. “We ordered a six person dinner but my eyes were a lot bigger than my stomach from training.”

Although he is still finding his appetite for food, Matthews seems hungry for another match. He hinted that he may possibly fight March 27th when his Black Eye Boxing team mate Karl “the Razor” Hess fights his professional debut at the Hershey Centre.

The fans want to see Matthews continue and so it’s good that when asked about his victory, the first thing Matthews said is, “I’m itchin’ for more.”
