Jake finally made his long waited professional debut in November 2021 winning all four rounds in a shut out points win over Josh Hodgins.
He had his second fight the following month and came through on points against veteran Kevin McAuley. The Wayne Woods trained southpaw made it a hat-trick in his first fight of 2022 when he outpointed clever journeyman, Jordan Grannum who is closing in on 100 fights. His second fight of this year took place at Doncaster racecourse in May, where he comfortable outpointed Evgenii Vazem in his first six rounder.
Jake returned there in October and had a tough night, surviving some rocky moments before deservedly outpointing dangerous Serge Ambomo over six rounds.
Proof of that came on a hometown return in February 2023 when he stopped Nicaraguan Alexander Zeledon in four rounds, dropping his opponent twice. Shortly after that fight he changed trainers leaving Wayne Woods to team up with former VIP champion boxer Tommy Coyle.
In July 2023, Goodwin was on the receiving end of a shocking setback, losing 57 56 on the referee’s scorecard against unheralded Ukrainian Artem Liashevych,
In his amateur career, Jake was a two-time National University champion at 69kg and 75kg.
