Boxing news: 18-year-old prospect Dennis McCann likened to Prince Naseem Hamed after stunning uppercuts in knockout win on Daniel Dubois undercard

Dennis McCann once again caught the eye as he knocked out Georgi Georgiev in two rounds to move to 4-0 (3 KOs) on Friday night in London.

McCann floored his foe twice in the first round and again in second, prompting the referee to jump in and stop the contest.

“His last 17 amateur bouts before he turned pro, he knocked everybody out, and he’s settled down really well.

“He can fight, he really can fight. He’s got a great boxing brain, watch him fight. If you like boxing, you’ll love him, he’s explosive.

“I think it’s his fourth fight now and it’s part of his journey. He’s been really busy, he’s had these fights very quickly.

“We’re gonna keep him busy and I think this time next year he’ll be there or thereabouts fighting for a British title.”
