Michael Conlan stops Kenny Guzman in second round knockout
Michael Conlan improved his professional record to 4-0 after a knockout win over Kenny Guzman in Arizona early on Saturday morning.
The Belfast featherweight caught Guzman with a big right hand at the end of the second round to send the American crashing to the canvas. The 26-year-old has now won by knockout in all of his four fights.
Guzman actually landed a big punch himself in round one but Conlan regrouped and by the time he ended the fight, his opponent had a bloody nose and a swollen eye.
"I felt good," Conlan told Box Nation afterwards.
"At the start I was a bit worried, I felt that he didn't have any power so I did the wrong thing and got reckless and wasn't minding taking punches, which is stupid of me.
"Manny [Robles, coach] shouted at me in the corner but I was just happy to get a nice knock-out.
"I felt a bit more power tonight, I was working the body a bit more."
Conlan's next fight will be on the undercard of Lomachenko-Rigondeaux in Madison Square Garden on 9 December.
