John Duddy moved closer to a World title tilt on Saturday night in New York with a first round KO of the outgunned Juan Astorga.
Derry Destroyer Duddy improved his ledger to 28-1 (18KO) on the MSG card and now looks set to return to action on March 13 on the undercard of Manny Pacquaio vs Joshua Clottey.
Astorga was out of his depth against the on form Duddy, who landed cleanly to body and head. After two knockdowns within the first two minutes the fight was waved off by referee Wayne Kelly.
