FULL FIGHT: Paddy Barnes debut disqualification win – opponent goes WWE

Top Pro Gif Ad
The professional debut of Paddy Barnes ended in bizarre circumstances last night.

The Belfast flyweight was in action in his home city at the Titanic Exhibition Centre and took on Bulgarian Stefan Slavchev.

While Barnes was comfortably winning the fight, the awkward journeyman was a little more awkward than expected and was disqualified in the fourth frame for physically lifting the Irishman over his shoulder and walking across the ring.
