Doheny takes out ‘The Hitman’ to retain Continental title

TJ Doheny retained his PABA super bantamweight title via stoppage win in Australia on Friday morning (Irish time).

The WBA World number 15 made a successful third defence of the continental strap stopping Roman Canto in the eight round of a Ottimo House, Denham Court, New South Wales, Australia.

The win sees Doheny push his record to 8-0 and despite a lack of pro rounds he will be hoping to move his way into title contention over the coming months.

The Oz based Irish pro was already offered a shot at Scott Quigg’s WBA regular title, but declined citing short notice. However, the Portlaoise native told pre Canto win that come the New Year he hopes to be knocking on the big time door.
