'Brown Flash' had been troubled by a body shot in the fifth, but then staggered Donovan with a left hook in the sixth. He dropped Donovan with a sweetly timed left hook in the seventh, and clubbed the Irishman to the canvas again in the closing seconds of the round.

Donovan's brave resistance was finally ended in the eighth as he toppled backwards following another big left hook from Barrett.

[QUOTE=petero;20708990]STFU ya qweer[/QUOTE] Peter, I see that Jessica McCaskill's upset of Cecilia Braekhus has got you in a real bad mood. I know you were banking on Braekhus to remain unbeaten so that your girl Savannah Marshall could land you…
