WATCH: Paddy Barnes bangs in beautiful bodyshot KO

Paddy Barnes [5(1)-0] gave the best performance of his pro career on Saturday night.

The Belfast flyweight scored a huge knockout on the big ‘Frampton Reborn’ card at the SSE Odyssey Arena, live on BT Sport.

Barnes had, on paper, a tough fight with Nicaraguan Eliecer Quezada – however he dropped the Central American in the second before putting the visitor down for the count with a wonderful left hook to the body in the sixth after a quick combo upstairs.

Watch Paddy Barnes v Eliecer Quezada in full below:
