This is a slight step for Sam Noakes who I think is a solid prospect in the lightweight division. Shaun Cooper is tough but limited and wasn’t able to do much against another prospect in Mark Chamberlain recently.
I think Sam Noakes should have to much power for Cooper who isn’t much of a puncher and shouldn’t be as technically good as Noakes. I predict Sam Noakes will get a stoppage in the 4th or 5th round after breaking Cooper down with body shots. I think Noakes could pick up a British title late next year if he keeps his current pace up.
