Ray Moylette scores Boston victory, ready for the next level

Assassin Promotions fighter ‘Sting Ray’ Moylette added another win to his record in his second professional bout, which took place on Saturday night on a show hosted by world renowned artists the Dropkick Murphys in Boston.

Under the banner of Murphys Boxing, the brainchild of Dropkick front man Ken Casey, Moylette looked poised in his approach and picked off Boston’s local ‘hardman’ Matt Probin.

Fighting at light welterweight, Moylette showed the power which has made him such a huge draw in the sport, flooring his opponent in the very first round. Probin managed to pick himself up but fell victim to a masterclass from the former European Amateur Champion for the remaining rounds, with the judges scoring it unanimously from the man from Co. Mayo, Ireland.

Moylette is firmly establishing himself as hot property within boxing circles with two wins in quick succession, the first coming in a London show hosted by Assassin Promotions earlier this month where Ray came through a tricky test against an experienced Slovakian Ivan Godor.

The Mayo born boxer has been training with renowned coach Paschal Collins and has based himself in the Celtic Warrior gym in Dublin. Collins, brother of the notorious Steve Collins, better known for twice defeating Chris Eubank, has been very impressed with the start made by the young boxer.

On the same bill Cork middleweight Spike O’Sullivan recaptured his form, with his Columbian opponent Ronald Montes forced to retire in the third round with a rib injury. Wexford heavyweight Niall Kennedy ripped the Massachusetts State title from his opponent via an impressive stoppage win.

Ray Moylette, light welterweight, 26:

“It was nice to get another win under my belt and be part of such a momentous occasion on St Patrick’s weekend in Boston. I felt comfortable in there and it was nice to be able to put into practice what I’ve been working on in the gym with my trainer Packie Collins. Now that I’ve had two good wins, I’m keen to push on and take things to the next level.

Kaz Evans, founder of Assassin Promotions:

“Ray’s transition to the Pro ranks has been seamless and he’s really settled over his last two fights. We’ve got big plans for his development and with the team behind him I’m certain he can fully realise his potential as a true champion.”
