HERVEY Bay's Australian and Pan Asian Boxing Association middleweight champion Jarrod Fletcher is content to just let his gloves continue to do the talking.
While there has been no shortage of talk in the media about Fletcher shaping up to Anthony Mundine after Mundine's loss to Daniel Geale in Sydney last week, Fletcher has been happy to go about his work as quietly and efficiently as he always does - that's his style.
Fletcher, No.7 in the WBA rankings, chalked up his 14th win in 15 bouts since turning pro after the Beijing Olympics with another impressive performance against Thailand's Kiatchai Singwancha at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre last Friday.
"Left Jab" as Fletcher is known in the fight game, won every round against the former PABA and WBF world champion before the referee decided he had seen enough and stepped in to stop the one-sided contest with 46secs left in the seventh round.
It was the eighth KO on Fletcher's resume.
The modest Fletcher said he was simply happy to have another win under his belt.
"He (Singwancha) was a tough and awkward opponent, but I dominated the fight and it's a great way to start the year," said Fletcher, who was having his first fight since he regained the PABA belt after beating West Australian and defending champion, Robbie "Bad Boy" Bryant on a unanimous points decision in Perth last December.
Fletcher's next fight is in Melbourne on April 5 - it's not against Mundine.
Former Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation lightweight champion and one-time world title challenger, the Philippines Randy Suico, is heading here for a shot at Fletcher's PABA belt.
He comes with plenty of firepower in his arsenal - of his 31 wins, 26 have been by KO.
Fletcher said the bout with Suico is all that he's concentrating on - he cannot afford to do anything else as Suico is a real "thumper".
"He (Mundine) is not on my radar, or in my thoughts, mate," Fletcher said.
