Irish heavyweight prospect Thomas Carty dropped Jay McFarlane three times on his way to a knockout win on Saturday night.
The pair clashed on the undercard of an undisputed super-lightweight world title fight between Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron.
Carty wasted no time in taking the fight to McFarlane, dropping him with a heavy shot in round one.
The Irishman continued where he left off in round two, landing a huge straight left-hand from the southpaw stance that saw McFarlane land flat on his back.
The Scotsman bravely made it back to his feet, but the fight did not last much longer after that.
Carty pounced once again, landing a clean shot to the chin of McFarlane.
And he followed that up with a barrage of punches that saw his opponent hit the deck once again.
This time the referee had seen enough, as McFarlane was clearly on unsteady legs, and Carty’s celebrations almost took him out of the ring as he jumped onto the top rope and tripped.
This win takes Carty, who has a wealth of sparring experience having helped Anthony Joshua in his camp for both of his clashes with Oleksandr Usyk, to 6-0 with five KO’s.
The 27-year-old Irishman has also sparred Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Lawrence Okolie, so he is well prepared to step up in level in the heavyweight division.
