Mayo's 'Sting Ray', Ray Moylette, scored his first professional stoppage in Boston overnight, forcing his opponent to quit after just one round of action.
Plainridge Casino in Plainville, Massachusetts played home to the Islandeady native's third professional contest, and Moylette destroyed his overmatched opponent Oscar Diaz after just three minutes.
Diaz's record of 0-11 suggested the result might be a formality, but the Boston local did weigh in a full 10 pounds heavier than his Irish conqueror as Moylette continues to pear himself down towards the lightweight limit.
A vicious body shot from the former amateur standout and Junior B football veteran appeared to cause Diaz to spit out his mouthpiece, and the Moylette sat him down moments later when the action restarted.
Having beaten the count, Diaz called quits on his stool ahead of the second round.
Moylette improves to 3-0[1KO], and returns to action in America in just seven days time ahead of a homecoming at the National Stadium on the 24th of June. The latter promises to be the most significant western invasion of Dublin since last September.

Headlining the same card, Cork's middleweight knockout artist Gary 'Spike' O'Sullivan eviscerated the less experienced Chauncey Fields to the body, dropping the American four times en route to an easy but spectacular TKO2.
Spike wore trunks with the words 'Mammy's Boy' emblazoned across the waist, but the only thing soft about his scrap was Fields' landing as he crumpled to the canvas for the fourth time after a sustained assault to the midriff.
O'Sullivan's win was adjudged knockout of the night in Plainville, and the Mahon native's record improves to 25-2[17KOs].
Moylette's fight begins at 41:10; Spike's begins at 2:07:50.
