Francesca Hennessy Shines On Her Pro Debut
Daughter of famous promoter Mick and brother of young prospect Michael Jr, Francesca Hennessy stamped her mark as part of the boxing family with an impressive debut stoppage victory at only 18 years of age.
Hennessy boxed smartly from the first bell, feinting and waiting for gaps to appear in Sonia Klos’s guard before firing off a few pinpoint shots to her opponent’s jaw. After a particularly brutal assault in the 4th round, doctors ruled Klos could not continue into the 5th, giving Hennessy her debut victory.
Francesca Hennessy said to Sky Sports after the fight: “Thank you to everyone who came out to support me tonight. It means the world. I want anything next! I’m going to gain more experience. You’ve seen what I’ve got there, and I’m willing to go to the very top. I’m not in this to mess around.”
