Olympic silver medallist John Joe Nevin continued his journey in the professional ranks with a routine victory over DeWayne Wisdom in Virginia last night.

The Mullingar lightweight made light work of the American who has just six professional victories in 33 contests at the ABC Sports Complex.

He was a comprehensive victor on all the judges cards.

He now boasts six victories, four by stoppage, and is scheduled to fight in Chicago on Wednesday, November 25 against 36-year-old Greg Coverson Jr.
