Con Sheehan – “That was only 50-60% of me”

Tipperary heavyweight Con Sheehan [4(1)-0] has promised that there’s a lot more to come from him following his Irish debut in Belfast on Saturday.

The Clonmel 27 year old outpointed (79:74) Kamil Sokolowski over eight rounds on the Boxnation ‘Homecoming’ show at the Titanic Exhibition Centre.

Sheehan was not overly happy with his showing, but focused on the positives of his performance and is confident that he can improve following his first time to go past the fourth round as a pro.

‘Con The Bomb’ told that “it was nice to get the eight rounds in, but it wasn’t a great performance.”

“I felt a bit flat, why I don’t know because I’m flying fit, but it didn’t look it there. I went dead after three or four rounds, I don’t know what it was.”

“There was a few glimpses of good stuff in there though and I got through it no problem anyway.”

“There’s a lot more in me, that was only fifty or sixty percent of me you’ve after seeing in there.”

Regardless of his display, Sheehan was delighted to fight as a pro in Ireland for the first time and hopes to soon return, he described how “it’s great to be back home, just to be around the Irish, there’s no place like it. Hopefully now we can put on better performances and be back a bit more often.”
