Victor Rabie shook off his ring rustiness to return to action with a classy points victory over Hermin Isava in Spain on Friday night and maintain his unblemished professional record.
The Moldovan-born Dubliner (9-0) has been out of the ring for 16 months but looked like he had never been away as he worked his way through the six-round contest, never looking in trouble against his Venezuelan opponent.
The lightweight prospect, who is planning to fight for his New York promotion outfit in the near future, dropped Isava in the fifth round, before taking the victory 60-53, winning every round on the referee's scorecard.

Waterford welterweight Dylan Moran was also on the Valencia card, and the Deise man was looking to kick-start his career against Israel Munoz.
The four-round bout, taken on short notice, showcased Moran's undoubted ability as he looks to gain a ranking in the division, and it turned out to be a unanimous win, securing the bout 39-37, 40-36, 40-36 on the cards.
Ryan O'Rouke was also on the Valencia card and made it four wins from four in the paid ranks with a comprehensive victory over Sonni Martinez.
