In the fight of the night on the ‘Belfast Boy’ card at the SSE Odyssey Arena, James Tennyson [19(15)-2(2)] bludgeoned his way to a sixth round stoppage over Ryan Doyle [14(8)-2(2)-1].
A super featherweight showdown for the WBA International rankings belt, ‘The Assassin’ began quickly against Doyle, before ‘Ruthless Ryan’ came on strong, hurting Tennyson in the third.
Doyle would enjoy more success in the fourth, before the momentum swung in the fifth back in favour of the Belfast boxer.
With the immensely brave Doyle badly bloodied, he was pulled out by his corner at the end of the sixth to hand Tennyson a high-profile win.
