Cathal Crowley is enjoying the home comforts so much that he doesn’t really see the need to move out!
The Celtic Warriors Gym fighter registered a second successive Cork victory at the Parochial Hall on Saturday night, meaning two of his three home wins have played out in his home county.
Considering he doesn’t recall a pro show taking place in the Munster county prior to the Siam Warriors summer bill [there was one in 2019 but not with massive Cork representation] he is more than aware he is blessed that two-thirds of his novice career has taken place at home.
“Two out of three it’s unreal. Before my first fight here in June I can’t remember there being a big pro fight night in Cork and I’m boxing 10 years. So to get two in a row back to back it’s unreal,” he tells Irish-boxing.com before suggesting the home run will continue.
“I think it’s just show by show at the moment but I think they’ll keep it up. There is a good enough here tonight and the support is there.”
The 22-year-old was speaking after he stopped Aleksander Nagolski in the second round of his third pro fight.
The Paschal Collins trained super middleweight admits the stoppage had roots in a cut that was opened up over his eye after a clash of heads.
“I was taking my time at the start and then a clash of heads cut me and I knew I had to take him out of there.
“I didn’t know I was cut until we broke from a clinch and I saw blood on his shoulder and said ‘f*ck I better get him out of here now’.
“He stood in the pocket a bit and that was his downfall. It felt unreal getting the knockout and just dropping him and walking to the corner, I was taking in the moment looking into the crowd and seeing my family and my friends all delighted for me. It was a great feeling.”
