Dream debut for Matty

First round KO for Coleraine’s rising star . . .

Matty Boreland has made a winning start to life as a professional boxer.

And he did it in style with a first round knock out!

The Coleraine man – the first professional from the town in 25 years – was triumphant at Spennymoor Leisure Centre on Saturday night.

Matty defeated Louis Smithson in Durham.

Coached by the town’s last professional – Micky Fleming – and managed by Ian Gaughran Boxing, this was the perfect start to Matty’s career.
