Irish boxer Darragh Foley scored his 22nd career win on Saturday via TKO, though it was far from a conventional victory.
Squaring off with British striker Robbie Davies Jr. at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, Foley secured the win after Davies Jr. suffered a nasty ankle injury less than a minute into the third round.
It was looking good for Davies Jr. in the first who hoped to give his hometown crowd a show. Things took a turn for the worse in round two when Foley dropped Davies Jr. with a blow that appeared to injure the Brit’s ankle as he fell to the canvas. Davies Jr. climbed back to his feet, but he was clearly not on stable ground. Coming out for round three, Davies Jr. fired a right hand. Foley returned fire with a left. When Davies Jr. stepped back in response, the Brit’s ankle finally gave out, sending him crashing to the canvas.
The victory extended Darragh Foley’s current win streak to five.
