WATCH: The incredible drama from Round 5 of Ray Moylette v Christian Uruzquieta

Ray Moylette [11(4)-1(0)] fell to the first defeat of his career last night in Mayo but no one could have predicted how the fight would go.

The Islandeady lightweight was dropped twice in the fifth round but showed amazing heart to beat the count as the Royal Theatre went wild.

Somehow, Moylette managed to rally following the knockdowns and put on a gallant performance in the second half before losing out on a split decision, beaten but not broken.

Watch highlights of the fifth round below:
