Maxi Hughes Career, What is his profession?
On September 17, 2010, Hughes made his professional debut against Johnny Greaves at the Doncaster Dome, winning by points decision (PTS) after four rounds. On April 20, 2013, in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, he competed against Scott Cardle for the vacant Central Area lightweight title after compiling an 8-0-1 (0 KOs) record. Hughes lost through PTS in his debut title match, handing him his first career loss. Hughes was initially slated to compete against Joseph Laryea for the vacant International Masters super-featherweight title on September 12, 2014, at iceSheffield after four victories.
Laryea was replaced by Kakhaber Avetisiani after he declined to compete on the scheduled date. After 10 rounds, Hughes prevailed, claiming his first championship through PTS. On December 6, 2014, he next faced Martin Joseph Ward. Hughes won by majority decision in a fight that acted as an eliminator for the British super-featherweight title. Ward argues that Hughes’ two knockdowns were caused by an unintentional head-to-head collision and a slip (MD).
Three judges scored the fight 95-94 for Ward, 94-94 for the other two judges, and 95-94 for Ward. The vacant WBC International super-featherweight title was at stake in the pair’s instant rematch, which took place on April 11 at Leeds’ First Direct Arena.
Hughes was “badly injured” by Ward’s uppercut in the fifth round, which caused Hughes’ corner to stop the fight at the conclusion of the round, giving Hughes a stoppage loss by corner retirement (RTD). On March 19, 2021, at the Whites Hotel in Bolton, he fought Paul Hyland Jr. for the vacant British lightweight title. Hughes won the fight through eighth-round TKO, which the media characterized as a “controversial” verdict. Hyland stumbled back in pain after being hit in the body by Hughes.
Hughes was initially told to go to a neutral corner by referee Mark Lyson because he thought Hyland had touched the ground. However, Hyland spun around and moved to the opposite corner. After realizing his error and giving Hughes the go-ahead to resume the match, Hughes sprinted across the ring and delivered a right hand to Hyland while still having his back turned. Lyson started a ten count as Hyland stumbled to the ground.
By the time the count of nine had passed, he had managed to stand again, but Lyson had stopped the competition, giving Hughes the British title in his third attempt. After winning the British title, Hughes competed for the first time in a global championship, taking versus Jovanni Straffon on September 4 at Leeds’ Headingley Rugby Stadium for the IBO lightweight crown. Hughes won a wide unanimous decision while competing on the undercard of Josh Warrington vs. Mauricio Lara. Two judges scored the fight 120-117, while the third gave it a score of 119-109.
