WATCH: Fight of the Year – Stephen McAfee v Colin O’Donovan 2

The guaranteed Irish Fight of the Year for 2018 took place in Dublin on Saturday night.

Following an under-the-radar first fight which subsequently captured the imagination, super featherweights Stephen McAfee and Colin O’Donovan rematched in the headline bout of Celtic Clash 5 at Good Counsel GAA club in Drimnagh.

Fighting over eight rounds for the vacant BUI Celtic title, it was another epic and was even better than the first.

The sixth round, especially, is a cracker!

In the end, it was McAfee who emerged victorious from the brawl on the tightest of split-decisions (77-75, 77-76, 76-77).
