WATCH: Niall Kennedy scores Connecticut KO

Niall Kennedy [11(7)-0] continues to rise through the ranks, scoring another stoppage win in America on Saturday night.

Co-headliner of a Murphys Boxing show at the Mohegun Sun Casino in Connecticut, Kennedy needed less than three rounds to dispose of Aaron Chavers.

The Wexford heavyweight destroyed Chavers to the body, with the referee intervening while the Oklahoma boxer was backed up to the ropes taking heavy leather.

Meanwhile, a few hours previously in Germany, an out-of-shape but game Sean Turner posed elite prospect Filip Hrgovic some problems en-route to a short-notice eight-round points defeat.
