Cinderella Man Peter McDonagh wins again

Peter McDonagh continued his boxing Cinderella story tonight in London.

The Galway veteran stretched his unbeaten run to nine fights with a good win over Arvydas Trizno at the Wembley Arena.

The popular MGM fighter boxed well against his Lithuanian opponent and took the six-round bout on the referee’s scorecard (60-55).

The three-weight Irish champion improved his record to 26(3)-28(2)-1, whilst Trizno fell to 22(5)-52(8)-2.

38 year old McDonagh will now continue his search for a European title fight in the near future as his remarkable resurgence in the sport continues.
