McLaughlin a cut above Gonzalez and claims win in America

DONEGAL’S Michael McLaughlin picked up a cut worthy of six stiches and his eight pro win in Dorchester USA on Saturday night.

The 29 year old light middleweight registered his second win since March with a points win over Pedro Gonzalez.

McLaughlin got cut early in the fight after a clash of heads. The cut was so bad the referee was forced to call a halt to the fight, but as the bout went four rounds the clash went to the cards and McLaughlin claimed a 40-36, 40-36, 40-36 points win to push his record to 8-1.
