Andre Lambe overcame the toughest test of his professional boxing career after defeating Sergio García Herrera via a majority decision in the main event of Fight Night Champion at The Shed in Dockyard last night [October 28].

Lambe improved his perfect record to ten victories, with two judges awarding the fight to the southpaw 58-56 and the other judge scoring it a draw.

The Bermudian, who retained his American Boxing Organisation regional welterweight title, said he had to dig deep against the higher-ranked Mexican [7-3] to ensure he triumphed in the six-rounder.

“It was my hardest fight, but also my best fight to date,” Lambe told Bernews.

“Heading into the fight, I knew it wasn’t a definite win; it would be a test, and I’d have to work hard. I knew I was up on the cards by the final round, and I pulled it off.”

The 28-year-old said he was conscious of avoiding Herrera’s concussive right hand and was satisfied with how he executed a flawless game plan.

“Our game plan worked well, shooting straight left hands down the middle and taking away his jab,” Lambe said.

“He has a good right hand, so I was looking to slip it, come underneath it, or move out of the way and catch him with a left hand.”

Lambe will take a well-deserved break, having fought four times this year, but revealed he already has a contest scheduled in Galveston, Texas, on June 1 against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.

“It’s been a long year for me and the team,” added Lambe, who beat Bryan Springs in Cleveland, Texas, in his previous outing in August.

“I‘m scheduled to fight in Texas again on a bigger card in June. Depending on how the dates line up, I’ll look to get something before that. I’m trying to take this to the next level.”
