Paul McCloskey produced a classy European light-welterweight title defence as he stopped Scotland’s Barry Morrison in seven rounds. The Dungiven man picked off Morrison in the opening rounds in Letterkenny and then put the ex-British champion on the canvas with a big right in the fifth. Morrison tried to get McCloskey involved in a brawl but the end came after another knockdown in the seventh. It was McCloskey’s second defence of his title and his 22nd straight win. The Derry fighter now has his eye on a possible world title shot possibley with Amir Kahn.
