Caoimhin Agyarko ensured a busy night of Irish boxing off to a perfect stat.
The Belfast middleweight was the first of four Irish boxers in action and kicked off the night with an impressive win.
Agyarko ended the year with a bang, registering a third career stoppage win in London.
The 23-year-old was predicting a tough fight against Bulgarian Danail Stoyanov [3(1)-9(0)] but seen the fact the journey has never been stopped as an opportunity to make a mini statement.
The Frank Warren prospect did just that, taking out the journey man at York Hall.
Speaking before the fight Agyarko told Irish-boxing.com he expected to start making more noticeable steps up the ladder in 2020 and believes that is when his best will be on display.
“A win will set up another busy learning year for me, but a year were I will step up in opponents and I believe that’s when you’ll see the best Caoimhin Agyarko.”
Agyarko was the first of the four Irish fighters in action tonight. Steven Ward will be up next in the Golden Contract quarterfinals, then Noel Murphy trades leather in Madison Square Garden, before Michael Conlan takes on Vladimir Nikitin at the same venue.
The win see’s Agyarko improve to 6-0 with three knockouts.
