Jamie McDonnell retains European bantamweight title


Jamie McDonnell retained his European bantamweight title with a third-round stoppage of Italian Rodrigo Bracco at the Doncaster Dome on Friday.

Local fighter McDonnell stopped his opponent two minutes and 53 seconds into the round after Bracco buckled under a flurry of punches.

The win, in his first defence, improved the 24-year-old's record to 15 wins and two defeats from 18 pro fights.

"I felt like I was destroying him with the jab," said McDonnell.
