Our weekly feature Fighter Favourites sees us ask Irish punchers their preferences from the world of boxing.
This week it is the turn of Dublin light welterweight Sean Creagh [4(2)-1(1)].
Q: Favourite Current Fighter?
A: That has to be Gennady Golovkin, by far. I can’t wait to see him live in Madison Square Garden on St Patrick’s Weekend against Danny Jacobs. Going over for his and Mick Conlan’s fights.
Q: Favourite Fighter of All Time?
A: Mike Tyson. The man was just a pure beast. His power and ring presence was something else.
Q: Favourite Irish Fighter?
A: That would have to be Matthew Macklin. He has been in some great fights over the years and he is also a top bloke.
Q: Favourite Fight?
A: Easy. Matthew Macklin v Jamie Moore for the British light middleweight title. What a fight. Toe-to-toe all the way through and they became good mates after it
Q: Favourite of Your Own Fights?
A: Might sound weird, but it would be my BUI Celtic title fight against Tyrone McKenna last November. Even though the result didn’t go my way, the build-up and everything was a great buzz. It was great to be involved in a big show, and I can’t wait to be part of another.
