After weeks of antagonising comments over social media, Damien Hooper got his revenge on Joel Casey lastnight at Jupiter’s Casino on the Gold Coast.
Casey, 30, was vocal in calling out the 2012 Olympian, but it was 22 year old Hooper who proved much too good, putting on a dominant and career best performance before ending the bout in the 7th round.
From the opening bell Hooper displayed his superior boxing skill, using his extreme reach to land jabs at will.
After 6 rounds of calculated dominance, Hooper landed a vicious body shot in the 7th, crippling Casey and sending him to the canvas.
The veteran southpaw displayed his renowned toughness to answer the count, but Hooper would again land a shot to the body which sent him to the mat.
With the three knockdown rule in affect, Hooper again dug a rip downstairs and with Casey going down he was awarded the 7th round KO.
The highly regarded prospect improves his record to 9-0, 8KOs.
