Callum Bradley back in boxing with star-studded team

Callum Bradley is ready to make a dramatic return to boxing.

‘Cool’ hasn’t been seen in the ring since beat Stefan Nicolae to go five unbeaten at The Falls Park in 2021.

His older brother, Tiernan Bradley, told Irish-boxing.com plans to get him back in the squared circle were underway earlier this year.

It turns out the comeback talk is real as the Omagh native has assembled a new team and has set his sights on a British title assault at super bantamweight.

Irish-boxing.com understands the plan is to re-introduce Bradley to the fray before he looks at the names at 126lbs at British domestic level.

The 24-year-old teams up David McGinley, who manages Frank Warren’s Mayo middle Eoin Lavin, and Project Boxing the management team Anthony Crolla is involved with.

Unlike Lavin, Bradley won’t employ Crolla as a coach, instead, he’ll work with back to back to back Irish Boxing Awards Coach fo the Year Dee Walsh.

“He is on his way back,” Tiernan Bradley said to Irish-boxing.com earlier this year.

“To be honest it’s not like he has to come back from anything because he has stayed in the gym constantly since his last fight. He’s been sparring in England, he’s sparred Jamie Lee, a top fighter who’s up there with them all. He’s been sparring Anto Cacace and all the bantamweights out there. Dee Walsh will tell you he’s doing fantastic in training and who knows you might see him on a GBM card in the future. “

The more active of the two Bradley’s believes there is a sleeping giant element to his younger brother.

The 27-year-old argues the former Jamie Conlan-managed 24-year-old could have a Conor Quinn-style impact if given a run of fights.

“He is always in and around boxing and he’s been working on his strength as well so you might see a few KO’s in around the bantamweight division. I’d put Callum up there with the top-level lads at the weight. He is almost like the bantamweight version of Conor Quinn. If Callum can get a run of fights you’ll see an amazing fighter.”
