Blucon’s Michael Rooney suffers first defeat

Former Blucon employee turned professional boxer Michael Rooney suffered his first professional defeat at the hands of local rival Marcus Ffrench. The Blucon sponsored lightweight (pictured right) was caught by a heavy right after just 55 seconds in front of a packed house at the Genting Arena. Despite making it back to his feet before the count, the referee called the fight, ending Rooney’s undefeated professional streak. The event, which was broadcast live on Sky Sports, was still a great night out with nearly twenty Clients, both old and new, joining us to cheer on our fighter.
