“I’m the f*****g future,” he told The Inner Sanctum.
The newly minted WBC Australasia silver champion boxed beautifully behind his right jab, getting the better of the exchanges throughout the duration of the fight to win a unanimous decision (80-72 x 2, 79-73).
Woods did have to battle adversity, however, not only in the form of a tough Kasilieris but also through a nasty cut above his left eye that was the result of a head clash.
The gruesome injury did not deter the rising prospect, though.
“He was a tough, tough customer, but we got the job done,” he said.
“It (the cut) doesn’t feel bad, I just felt it gush.
“I was like, ‘I’ve just got to box, box, box.’
“My coach was like, ‘be smart mate, we’re up on the scorecards. Even if they do stop it, we’re up.'”
