Rock rolls to easy victory in York Hall
STEPHEN Ormond impressed live on Box Nation TV tonight waltzing his way to a 100-92 victory in the York Hall.
The Clondalkin puncher out boxed Irish super featherweight champion Mickey Coveney and cantered his way to a one sided win.
The Celtic Gym fighter looked supremely fit and had too much hand speed, power and boxing noose for the West Ham fighter of Cork heritage.
Ormond will now be looking for a move to championship level and there are rumours a title fight or a bout with one of the British high profile names is being lined up.
There could have been no argument if the Dubliner had been awarded all ten rounds, but there was also a sense ringside that Ormond could have ended the bout earlier especially considering he stopped him when they meet previous.
Ormond, however claims he was comfortable throughout, wanted the rounds and after the brawl he had with Paul Appleby last time out wanted to show he could also box.
Speaking after the fight the 29 year old said.
“I really enjoyed that. I stopped him last time, but he is a tough lad and he has improved. It was never going to be easy to stop him. He knows what I am like from the last time we fought and he did improve. I also wanted to show I could box and fight. I stepped off and boxed more. The more rounds the better.”
