‘Buncrana Banger’ John Hutchinson will have a St Patrick’s Day shot at the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Continental Middleweight title after recording his latest win at the weekend.
Hutchinson scored a fourth round stoppage of Sivan Hermez at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel, Kedron, Australia.
Referee Tony Kettlewell stepped in during the fourth stanza to call a halt as Hutchinson won for the seventh fight in a row and left with the WBF Australasian super middleweight belt.
The Buncrana man extended his record to 12-2-2 (4KOs) in the process with Hermez dropping to 5-13-0.
Now, Hutchinson will take on Craig Parke (10-2) at The Star in Sydney on March 17.
“These are the things you dream of when you put the gloves on in an old rainy shed in Ireland,” Hutchinson said.
