Tyrone McKenna reveals what two things Irish people are good at in hilarious post-fight interview

"There's two things that Irish people do well..."

Tyrone McKenna just won an absolute war against Jose Felix Jnr in what has to be the fight of the night at Belfast's Falls Park.

It was on the undercard to Michael Conlan's world title eliminator against TJ Doheny, but it will take something special to top it.

McKenna is known for his all-action style, like something from a Rocky movie, the Belfast native knows nothing but coming forward and throwing punches in bunches.

Despite being over six foot and taller than most of the fighters at super lightweight, the southpaw refuses to box at range, and just invites the war - and a war is what he got.

After 10 rounds of action at what seemed a million miles an hour, the two finished the last round as they started the first - swinging relentlessly, coming forward and not giving an inch.

Despite the bout being very competitive, McKenna was the clear winner, and took the vacant WBO Inter-Continental title for his troubles.

Afterwards in his post-fight interview, the 31-year-old was as equally entertaining as he was in the ring.

"It's unbelievable, they make you feel like a god out there, I love Belfast, I love Belfast people.

"They come out and support their own, I mean it was torrential rain today, and still 8,000 people came and showed their face."

"Well congratulations, go out tonight and celebrate," added the ringside reporter.

"There's two things that Irish people do well, and that's fighting and drink," McKenna concluded.

"And the fighting is over."
