'YOU'LL never beat the Irish’ - these were the words that sang out at the Coventry Skydome over the weekend as three homegrown Irish fighters enjoyed victory in the ring.

Donegal's Brett McGinty and Monaghan brothers Aaron and Stevie McKenna were all in action over the weekend as part of Hennessy Sports multi-titled card and all three won their bouts in sensational style.

No escape for Richmond Djarbeng from Stevie McKenna

Almost sprinting out of his corner, The Hitman put Richmond Djarbeng from Ghana on the defence and kept him pinned against the ropes for a 43 second tirade of hits before the referee stepped in to stop the fight and award Stevie McKenna with his ninth knockout victory - six of which have been in the first round.
