Belfast heavyweight Martin 'Iron Man' Rogan, returning to the ring a year after he picked up a career-threatening neck injury, bounced back with a first-round KO of Bulgarian Yavor Marinchev.

Dubliner Anthony Fitzgerald is still the Irish super-middleweight champion after his clash with Lee Murtagh was declared a no contest -- Murtagh sustained a cut following a clash of heads in the second round.
