POUGHKEEPSIE, NY (May 15, 2012) — Undefeated Irish super featherweight Patrick “The Punisher” Hyland improved his record to a perfect 26-0, registering his 12th knockout when the action was halted by the referee Benji Estevez in the fourth round as veteran Frankie Archuleta (27-10-1, 14 KOs) was being pounded in tonight’s main event, headlining “Irish Invasion,” at Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.

“Irish Invasion” was presented by Final Round Promotions, in association with Team Snooki Boxing and Bob Duffy’s Ring Promotions, and sponsored in part by Title Boxing.

Hyland came out throwing crippling body shots, taking complete control from the opening bell. He dropped Archuleta in the first and third rounds, peppering Artchuleta with stiff jabs, solid combinations and devastating body blows.

“It was a good fight but I could have done a little better,” Hyland said after the fight. “He’s a tough guy who hit me with a couple of good shots. I got him with some good shots in the fourth when it was stopped. I’m a contender, 26-0, and fighting here in the United States. I’m ready for anybody at 126 pounds.”
