Belfast cruiserweight Tommy McCarthy got his professional career off to a winning start with a third-round stoppage of Rolandas Cesna at the Dewsbury Leisure Centre on Saturday, May 24.  Big things are expected of McCarthy who is managed by Pat Magee and trained by Patsy McAllister and Bernardo Checa.

Cesna was on an eight-fight losing streak and offered little offensive ambition, opting to cover up and try to quell McCarthy’s increasingly hostile assaults. Stepping up the pressure at the end of the second round Tommy was landing straight hands to the head and plenty of body shots. Following more intensity the referee shuffled in between the fighters midway through the third session and ended the heavily-tattooed Lithuanian’s evening.
