Ray Moylette sent former world title challenger Michael Clark to the canvas on three occasions, as the man from Mayo moved to 7-0, in Boston last Saturday.
Moylette who made his debut in March of this year, has said he wants to get to 10 wins before the end of the year, and it certainly seems as though the Assassin Boxing managed lightweight is on track to get such a feat.
On a show put on by Golden Boy Promotions and Murphy’s Boxing, which was shown live on ESPN, Moylette managed to get his 7th win in as many months.
Trained by Packie Collins, the Celtic Warrior stable had a busy night, with Gary ‘Spike’ O Sullivan also claiming a win against Liverpool’s Nick Quigley.
On what was his 5th time fighting in The States, Moylette started quickly with two knock downs coming in the first round. A well executed upper cup, whipped with real menace caught Clark right on the button, but the veteran survived the count.
It didn’t take long for Moylette to close the bout in round two. As Clark threw an ambitious hook, Moylette connected with a perfectly timed right hand, which saw Clark thunder over, and the third man in the ring waved off the contest.
Manager, and founder of Assassin Boxing commented
‘This was a really tough test for Ray on paper, but Ray is always improving and he made Michael Clark look like a novice, which is an achievement in itself.
I think everyone in boxing knows the potential Ray has. We are gradually stepping Ray up, but if he keeps going this way, we’ll see him in the big, big fights sooner rather than later. At the same time, Ray has only been a pro for 7 months, so we have to be careful, but with his work with Packie Collins, he’s done brilliantly to convert from the amateurs to the paid ranks’.
