VIDEO: Joe Fitzpatrick – I need to be fighting better boxers to move up rankings

Joe Fitzpatrick took his record to 4-0-0 on Saturday night with a first round KO win over Latvian Ruslans Berdimuradovs.

‘The Dragon’ Fitzpatrick now has four KO wins on his record but the Belfast lightweight was far from impressed with his latest win.

After the bout the Commonwealth Silver medalist spoke to Irish-boxing.com and gave his views on an opponent who he felt gave up a little too easy.

Fitzpatrick said he now wants a step up in class and more meaningful fights as he looks to push for an Irish title before the end of 2016.
