Paul Hyland Jr vs Stephen Ormond
At the SSE Arena, on the undercard of the unification bout between Ryan Burnett and Zhanat Zhakiyanov, unbeaten Irishman, Paul Hyland Jr, takes on experienced warrior, Stephen Ormond.
Ormond starts fast, out working Hyland in the first couple of rounds, before Hyland staggers and drops Ormond in round 3, Ormond, really hurt, and it seems Hyland is taking over, but it isn't long before Ormond finds a second wind.
Ormond dominates the fight for the last half, Hyland, trying to fire back, but tiring, as Ormond doesn't, and has little trouble quickening up his feet, closing the distance, and firing fast, hard combinations, hurting Hyland a few times, Hyland tries, but finds little real success in most of the rounds, of which he clearly loses.
The judges are disgraceful, as famously poor referee, Howard Foster, robs Ormond, scoring tough, but clearly defeated Hyland a winner by a point, and moron, Valerie Dorsett, scores Hyland a winner by 10 rounds to 2, disgustingly.
