Breen: It’s hard to predict what type of performance ‘The Pat Man’ will deliver

Even coach John Breen doesn’t know what to expect from charge Paddy Gallagher when he takes to the ring on November 20th.

‘The Pat Man’ fights on the eagerly anticipated All on The Line bill at the Waterfront hoping to to extend his record to 9-2 and take a step toward 2016 title fights.

The clash will be the Commonwealth gold medal winners fourth with Breen. The popular welterweight prospect has claimed points victory in his previous three under the experienced coach, but Breen still feels there is room for improvement.

The veteran corner man is trying to get Gallagher to use his skill-set more and seems a little frustrated the 26 year old can’t curb his desire to fight.

“Paddy is fighting a Hungarian kid, who has the same kind of record as Paddy.

“He has trained and sparred well but with Paddy you never know what will happen on the night.

“I want him to box – but Paddy likes to fight – so we will have to wait and see what happens.

“Paddy wins this fight, then we will be looking at a title fight in his next outing,” Breen told the Belfast Newsletter.

Breen will also have Marco McCullough in action at the Waterfront as well as debutant Fergal McCrory, who has impressed the coach in the build up to the bout.

“He has great power in his left hand and he is really committed and dedicated. He will go well,” he added.
