VIDEO: James Tennyson’s explosive KO at the Europa Hotel

Featherweight James Tennyson stole the show at the weekend on the ‘Champions at the Europa’ dinner card.

The Belfast youngster, who has recently been ordered to meet Darren Traynor in a British title final eliminator, was fighting George Gachechiladze – and the assassin absolutely annihilated the Georgian gatekeeper.

Gachechiladze, a former foe of Kiko Martínez and Willie Casey, was sent to the canvas in the second by a barrage of right hands. Rising to his feet, the Eastern European was instantly put back down for the count by a gut-wrenching left hook to the body.

It was certainly a big statement by the Kronk fighter who could become a big name in Irish boxing in the next 12 months.
