It was a big night for Kildare boxing in different ends of the country last night as Roy Sheahan and Gary Cully recorded stoppage wins in their respective fights.
Athy boxer Sheahan was an impressive winner as he stormed to a third round stoppage victory over Romanian Marian Cazacu in Castlebar, Co Mayo. The first ever winner of the Last Man Standing competition in Ireland, Sheahan unloaded a variety of fine combinations to dominate the opening round and shake his opponent.
The former Irish amateur champion threatened to stop his opponent before the end of the second round, but it wasn't until the fifth when referee David Irving eventually called a halt to the bout.
It moves Sheahan onto a 5-0 record ahead of 2019.
Naas boxer Cully delivered another highly impressive performance as he continues to boost his growing reputation, dispatching Tanzanian opponent Muhammed Kambuluta inside the first round.
It was the last fight of the year for the unbeaten lightweight, who impressed with his punching power by knocking the Tanzanian three times in the first round at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast. 22-year-old Cully is now unbeaten after seven professional fights and is continuing to deliver on his potential as he looks to progress up the boxing rankings.
