VIDEO: Another impressive stoppage win for Mark Heffron

One of the hottest prospects in the super middleweight division, Mark Heffron, was victorious at the weekend.

The Gary Hyde-managed prospect overpowered Latvia’s Raimonds Sniedze inside two rounds at the Radcliffe Civic Hall to take his record to [11(9)-0].

After the fight, Heffron told the Burnley Express that “I felt good. I could’ve moved my head a bit more, chilled out a bit and then put it on him after the halfway point.”

“I wanted to get a few more rounds in but at least it went past the first. I thought it could’ve been stopped earlier to be fair.”

Noting his opponents record, the Oldham-born boxer explained that “he’s been in with some decent guys – he went the distance with Lee Markham who just fought Luke Blackledge.”

Nobody has ever stopped him that quickly before. I bet he’s feeling the pain.”
