Another knockout for Showtime Stephen McAfee

Stephen McAfee‘s highlight reel is getting longer by the fight.

The Dublin lightweight scored a first round stoppage tonight at the National Stadium on the ‘Celtic Clash 3: Building Champions bil.’

The Sallynoggin fighter had scored a stunning stoppage in his debut on Celtic Clash 2, and followed it up with another big finish here.

McAfee faced Hungarian Attila Horvath, and forced the Magyar to take a knee in the first round following a succession of meaty bodyshots at the end of the opener.

Horvath would not recover, and indeed needed several minutes before being able to leave the ring.

The second successive knockout sees McAfee improve his perfect professional record to 2(2)-0, while Horvath falls to 3(3)-7(6).
