Down for the count: Watch Liam Conroy’s KO win over Albert

On Saturday night Liam Conroy scored the best win of his fledgling career to date.

The Barrow light heavyweight of Galway stock knocked out Ferenc Albert in the fourth round at the Guild Hall in Preston to claim the WBC Silver Youth title.

It was a career-best performance from the 23 year old who showed patience and good shot selection in the early stages before finishing off the Hungarian when the opportunity eventually presented itself with a sickening succession of body shots.
