PATRICK Hyland delivered on his promise to punish Noel Echevarria for the Dubliner’s frustrating period of inactivity and put on an impressive Broadway Boxing show last night.
‘The Punisher’, who was the headline act at the famed famed B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in midtown Manhattan, returned to the ring with a stoppage victory.
The Tallaght native showed good poise and crisp combination punching from the outset as he controlled the action against the southpaw Echevarria. Hyland picked up the pace in each round and by the fourth round was really pouring it on.
With Echevarria taking heavy punishment, the referee jumped in and called a halt to the contest at 0:45 seconds of the fourth round. With the win, Hyland improved to 28-1, 13KO’s, and looks to have found a home with DBE and NYC.
