The two-time Olympic bronze medalist was defeated by reigning WBC flyweight champion Cristofer Rosales.
The Belfast native traded blows well with Rosales before a hard body shot by the Nicaraguan saw him sink to his feet - losing by knockout in the third round.
Carl Frampton headlines the card in a featherweight clash with Luke Jackson later this evening.
