It’s only Tyrone McCullagh’s third bout as a pro, but he claims there is something special about his February 6 fight.
You always remember your first time and McCullagh certainly believes his first clash on home soil will live long in the memory.
The Goodwin Promotions super bantamweight goes to work on The Elimination card in a matter of weeks and is certainly excited about his home debut.
“I’m delighted to get my first fight on home soil,” McCullagh told Irish-boxing.com.
“I can’t wait for it. I can’t wait for any fight but my home debut is a bit extra special.
“Since I turned over alot of people had been asking me when I would be fighting here and I wasn’t to sure what to tell them, but since I’ve found out the support has been amazing. Everyone seems to be buzzing for it and I know that they will make some noise on the night.”
McCullagh’s first to bouts, both second round stoppages, have come in England and although he is delighted to be fighting in Belfast the Derry native claims he is willing to travel to build up his record.
“To be honest I’ll fight anywhere if I have to. I don’t mind. It doesn’t bother me having to leave the country to fight. With that being said it will be great anytime I do fight in Belfast I love it there and the support I have coming from Derry and belfast is next to none.”
