VIDEO: Paddy Irwin’s huge debut KO win

Stephen Ormond wasn’t the only Irishman in action at the weekend at the Monster Brawl. On the undercard of the Murphy’s Boxing show in Melrose on Friday night, Athlone’s Paddy Irwin made an explosive debut.

The light middleweight, now based in Quincy, Massachusetts, took less than two rounds to dispatch of Theo Desjardin at the Memorial Hall.

A former white collar fighter floored Desjardin in the second with a massive right, leaving the American unable to continue.
