Ulster Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland

Unbeaten Padraig “The Hammer” McCrory successfully defended his WBC International 168lbs Silver belt with a second round KO over Celso Neves (Portugal, licensed in Switzerland).   He dropped Neves twice in round two and Ian John-Lewis stopped the fight after 35 secs of that session.   Neves probably won the first round catching the home favourite with some good shots during the opening three minutes.   So, looking a good start for him, as he went to Belfast to fight and win.   Eventually, McCrory’s power made the difference.   The champion improved to 13-0 with seven Kos.
