JOE HOWARTH made an impressive start to his professional career in October 2021 becoming only the second man to stop Naeem Ali who was having his 81st ﬁght.
The ringside doctor called oﬀ the ﬁght at the end of round one because of Ali’s badly damaged left eye, but he had been under pressure. Another man who is rarely stopped , Jamie Quinn was on the receiving end a few weeks later. The hapless journeyman was dropped three times and rescued in the second round.
He made it a quick ﬁre hat-trick on the Manchester Jolly Boys show in December stopping fully blown Welterweight Jake Osgood in two rounds, dropping the Carlisle man three times.
Howarth had a great learning ﬁght in April 2022 when he was taken the six round distance by Spain-based Nicaraguan Josue Bendana who took plenty of punishment and gave the Wigan man plenty to think about.
Lee Blundell trained Howarth signed professional terms with VIP in July 2020, but the pandemic meant a lengthy wait for his debut.
