Watch: 'Most devastating KO you will see' delivered by Belfast boxer Padraig McCrory

"People I hit, they seem to get hurt" - this might be why

There was plenty of Danger at the Devenish on Saturday evening - particularly for Manny Bique.

The Dominican Republic boxer travelled to Belfast to take on home super-middleweight Padraig McCrory on the card that culminated with Conrad Cummings' win over Michael Mora.

But Bique didn't even last two rounds against the man fittingly nicknamed 'The Hammer'. One mega blow ended the bout with what local production company Sideline Films called "the most devastating KO you will see."

"People I hit, they seem to get hurt," said the popular McCrory afterwards. "Three fights and all three have hit the floor, although I've never knocked somebody out cold like that!

"I got carried away in the first round, looking for the shots. He caught me with one or two, he was game to fight, but I knew once I caught him clean that I was going to knock him out."

Sideline Films' video has exploded on social media, earning over 25,000 views in little over a day. Watch it right here:

McCrory's victory takes his professional record to a perfect three wins from three, his latest two results coming via knock-out at the Devenish.

In Saturday's headline bout, Coalisland middleweight Cummings (13-1-1 6KOs) stopped Mora in the second round, dropping the Nicaraguan journeyman thrice en route.
