WATCH: Highlights of 17-year-old James Power’s second stoppage win


James Power [2(2)-0] scored his second pro win earlier this month in Mexico.

Ireland’s youngest pro scored another second round stoppage win in Tijuana, six weeks on from his debut.

The 17-year-old Cork lightweight had to work for his ‘W’, with a late change of opponent meaning he took on an ambitious teenage debutant in Saul Victoria.

The youngsters slugged it out in the opening round but Power would get on top and forced the referee to step in.

Watch highlights of the fight below:

Power was meant to fight the previous night but an overbooked show saw him pushed back one day.

While it was a less glamorous venue, the young Rebel and his team did happen to bump into U.S. contender J’Leon Love who would join him for his ringwalk.
