Big punching Derry middleweight, Connor Coyle got his professional career off to an impressive start with a swift, no-nonsense first round stoppage of Euris Silverio in the USA last night.

The Galliagh man’s decision to make the leap into the paid ranks and begin his career in the US has clearly paid off as he looked in top condition following a 12 week training camp in Florida and he made easy work of his opponent at the A La Carte Pavillion Centre in Tampa.

A former St Joseph’s ABC clubman and 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, Coyle will now turn his attentions to making his Irish professional debut at the National Stadium on November 5th as he looks to take his record to 2-0.

Tickets are available for Coyle’s Irish debut in Dublin at Rod and Line in Clarendon Street.
