The St Ives Boxing Academy star is considering his future in the sport after being forced to pull out of his big English title fight. Goodjohn was due to battle Johnny Garton for the vacant welterweight crown on March 19, but instead faces surgery and a lengthy recovery after suffering a spiral fracture of his right hand in sparring late last week. Im gutted, said the 24 year-old. It couldnt have happened at a worse time. I threw an over-hand right to the top of the head and the pain was excruciating. I knew immediately Id done something serious. Im hoping to get operated on either later this week or early next week, but it will be seven or eight months before I can be back throwing punches. Ive got to do a lot of thinking about whether I box again. It would be a big risk financially to carry on fighting. Ive pumped £3,000 of my own money into this training camp and I cant risk the same thing happening again. Ive lived my dream and now got to think about the future. Goodjohn, who won the English strap at light-welterweight before stepping up a division last year, is due to become a father this summer. He and partner Nicole are expecting their first baby. He added: Ive got a daughter on the way in June and Ive got to do whats best for my family. Ive been in some great fights and Ive never shied away from anyone. I dont regret a thing. If youre once a fighter, youre always a fighter. I love boxing, but it hasnt got the money some sports have. In fact it just makes my life hard, but I would have walked through walls to be English champion again. It could have been a great fight that opened a lot of doors and I felt absolutely spot-on for it. Thats not going to happen now and the worst thing is I have my own gym where I teach boxing so I cant even do that at the moment. Goodjohn has won 12 of his 16 fights as a pro.
