The Tyrone lightweight faces Bulgarian Ivailo Boyanov in a hugely entertaining four-rounder.
Fighting for the first time in eight months, McCrory didn’t take long to get started and neither did Boyanov, immediately trading at centre ring. An all-action first two rounds, the Eastern European journeyman landed plenty and certainly came to fight. However McCrory seemed to have a slight advantage and began to take control in the second half of the fight.
The Bulgarian went down following a sustained period of pressure in the third, but it was, correctly, ruled a slip by referee Eamonn Magill (who was officiating his first contest)
The final round was the Coalisland puncher’s best of the fight, with McCrory interspacing his toe-to-toe moments with some nice boxing.
The final scorecard read 40:37 in favour of McCrory who stretches his unbeaten record to 3(1)-0 and he will look to improve this further on the Red Corner ‘Inception’ show in Dublin next month. The very game Boyanov falls to 2(0)-6(3)-1 and is another one of tonight’s boxers we would like to see back on these shores.
