Willie Limond Destroys Eddie Doyle With First Round TKO

By Luke Furman

Willie Limond (36-4, 10KOs) destroyed previously undefeated Eddie Doyle (12-1, 2KOs) in the first round to capture the vacant Commonwealth junior welterweight title at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow, Scotland.

Limond came out swinging from the first bell, dropping Doyle with a big combination. Soon after a second knockdown sent Doyle down hard. He was able to beat the count once again, but the referee waved off the fight.

"The tactic was to land bombs early doors. I feel strong at this weight. I knew Eddie was going to come for it. I said to myself earlier, 'this isn't going by one round'. I just had a funny feeling. That's the first in a long time I just felt myself and I was expressing in it there. This means the world to me. I still feel young, I still feel fresh," Limond told BBC Scotland.
