Former Lucindale boxer Mitchell Clark secured his second consecutive win since returning to the ring after a two year hiatus on Friday night.

At the sold-out Melbourne Pavillion, Clark defeated Brad Traynor by TKO at the end of the fourth round in an impressive performance.

“It went bloody fantastic, I came away with a really good win,” Clark said.

“Brad is a really tough fighter. He got me working on my feet, working around the ring which was good. 

“It was a pretty quick night at the office which was good. I didn’t get any injuries or anything like that.

“I didn’t really get hit. It’s always good to lay some punches and not get hit yourself.”

Clark said he enjoyed fighting in front of an exceptional crowd.

“It was a sold out show which was fantastic – just over 3000 at the venue,” he said. “It was a great atmosphere, everyone was cheering and making a lot of noise.

“It really gets your heart pumping when there’s a crowd like that for sure.”

Clark’s attention now switches to the Australian Titles in March, where he will be in contention for the light-heavyweight championship of Australia. 

“I’ll have a three week break or so over Christmas, then we’ll get stuck back into it and have a look at the Australian titles,” he said.

“That’s a pretty big comp.”
