WATCH: JJ McDonagh v Jake Ball – HUGE KO

Top Pro Gif Ad
While there were two other surprises on the ‘Big City Dreams’ bill, Mullingar’s JJ McDonagh caused the shock of the night, and indeed maybe the shock of the year, with a one-round demolition of hot prospect Jake Ball.

Stepping up to light heavyweight, McDonagh sensationally stopped the English fighter, first sending him careening into, and then over, the ropes, before then knocking Ball out heavily

While there was some concern at the time, Ball has since been given the all-clear.

10/1 beforehand, McDonagh picked up the WBA International title with the win.
