Gráinne Walsh got Ireland up and running at the European Championships in Bulgaria today in absolutely devastating fashion

The Offaly welter defeated Sebian Marija Petovic in her Last 16 clash via third round stoppage after inflicting three counts, the first of which was a heavy knockdown

Small at the weight and giving away a sizeable reach advantage, Walsh tore into her Balkan opponent from the start and a massive left hook had Petovic out on her feet almost instantly. The Spartacus fighter put the Serb down moments later and continued to launch wave after wave of punishing attacks until the bout was called off in the third of four rounds.
