Watch: Irish Boxer's Opponent Gets Disqualified For Utterly Bizarre Brain-Fart

If you're not an ardent boxing fan you might have come across Dublin's Lynn Harvey on a recent episode of the Irish series of First Dates.

A big hit with fans of the RTÉ show, 'The Hunter' is a bigger hitter outside of it, and took part in her fourth professional fight at the National Stadium on Saturday night.

The Kilbarrack light-flyweight threw down in a compelling contest with Sara Regina Coca on the South Circular Road as part of Red Corner's hugely entertaining 'Unfinished Business' card, which also featured victories for Eric Donovan and Luke Keeler amongst others.


Harvey's Romanian opponent made a more than decent scrap of it, but was disqualified in the third round for - of all things - kicking Harvey in the midriff, much to the disgust of Harvey's extremely vocal fans.

The DQ arrives at 7 minutes below:

Coca has a background in Muay Thai, and so her 'teep' in this instance was either an instinctive accident or, perhaps more likely, an utterly petulant act by a fighter who was being edged by the superior Harvey. In any case, it's one of the most bizarre disqualifications you're likely to see.


Harvey moves to 3-1 with 2KOs, and makes amends for her Stadium defeat to a far larger opponent in Mary Romero last year.
