However, after the highlight he pulled off in the event-opening bout at Indigo at 02 Arena, Kavanagh (3-0) sent the London crowd into a frenzy with a beautiful slip-and-rip knockout of Ryan Morgan (1-1). The finish came at 1:13 of Round 3.
Morgan threw a right hand, which Kavanagh avoided. A left followed, but also Kavanagh dodged. After two whiffs, Morgan was left squared up and wide open for a violent one-two combination from Kavanagh. Upon impact, Morgan flattened to the canvas with his leg twisted awkwardly up in the air.
