Prince Brady humbled in knockout defeat in second pro bout

Bantamweight prospect Prince “Dreamhills” Brady (1-1) had his winning record torn to pieces when he was stopped within the first round of his second pro bout on September 15 at York Hall in London on a Goodwin Boxing event.

The 24-year-old Zimbabwe-born Irishman, now residing in Essex, was stopped by his Bulgarian opponent Georgi Georgiev (6-11-1) with less than 30 seconds remaining in the opening round. Referee Mark Bates was forced to stop the contest at 2:37 after the unbeaten home fighter was dropped earlier in the round and had no answer to the attacks.

The 26-year-old European came into the fight off the back of a points win a few weeks prior in August and secured a second successive victory against the unbeaten home fighter. The man from Sofia now boasts four knockouts from six wins. His other most notable scalp was against Sam Cantell (5-0-1) in February 2016 when he stopped the South Londoner in the second round. The pair may have crossed paths again as Cantwell was in action on the same show, scoring a third round stoppage win to take his record to 7-1-1.

Brady, who originally hails from Balbriggan in Ireland, made his pro bow last November and survived a first-round knockdown to defeat Swedish opponent Eduard Bjorkland (1-5-1) on points in a thrilling four-round super-bantamweight contest.

The brash youngster lists Chris Eubank Jr as an inspiration to him but disastriously failed to back up his braggadocio.
