Irish Prospect of the Year Jamie Kavanagh was in seventh heaven on a Club Nokia Show in Los Angles Thursday night, registering his seventh straight victory via an impressive stoppage.
The Golden Boy promoted starlet ended 36 year old journey Man John Willoughby’s night early scoring a third round stoppage on the Fox Sport Net and RingTV.com broadcast show.
Kavanagh (7-0) started fast and forced Willoughby to retreat with body shots that were as brutal as they were accurate in the early rounds.
The veteran (3-8) did make brave attempts to work his way into the fight, but it didn’t take long for the Dubliner, who is fluent in Spanish to stop his lesser skilled opponent.
The 21 year old Freddie Roach trained former Crumlin amateur will now be looking for bigger test in a bid to further move up the boxing ladder.
