UFC Boss Dana White heaped praise on Irish boxer “King” Callum Walsh after the Cork fighter clinched an impressive first-round knockout victory in California Thursday.

White sat ringside for the UFC Fight Pass main event where Callum stretched his undefeated streak to 3-0 with an effortless win over Mexico’s Luis Garcia.

“He’s sharp, he’s amazing man he’s fun to watch, he’s explosive,” White said in the ring after the win in front of a vocal Irish crowd.

“He’s got what it takes so I’m excited, I’m a big fan.”

“I haven’t been to a show like this in a long time this was fun,” he said. “This crowd was awesome, tons of energy… I’m so glad I came.”

Walsh, fighting southpaw and draped in the County Cork colors of red and white, dropped Garcia to the canvas after just a few seconds with a lightning right hook left hook combination.

Garcia beat the count but Walsh followed up with a thunderous left hook that bingoed Garcia against the ropes and into the corner.

The 21-year-old then unleashed a flurry of combinations knocking Garcia to the mat before the referee immediately called a halt to proceedings.

“There’s not many fellas around that can take the power,” Walsh said afterward.

Walsh is set to fight again on June 25.
