Watch Gary Russell Jr versus Patrick Hyland fight

It might prove too tough a watch for some Irish fight fans, but below is Patrick Hyland’s knockout reverse suffered at the quick firing gloves of Gary Russell Jr.

Hyland stepped up to elite, indeed some might argue Pound for Pound level and found Russell Jr too much to handle.

The Tallaght featherweight, who was challenging for the WBC World featherweight title, has taken the defeat on the chin and seems to be in positive mood post bout.

On Saturday night, however he was dropped for the first time in his 30 plus fight career.
