FULL FIGHT: Marco McCullough’s Belfast battle

Top Pro Gif Ad
Marco McCullough last night won his first big fight back since his Commonwealth title loss to Isaac Lowe.

The Belfast feather took on Mexican Luis Lugo in the headline fight at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in what was a back-and-forth battle.

The popular Shankill man was hurt at the end of the second before bouncing back and flooring Lugo in the fourth with a body shot. The Mexican would retire at the end of the round following a sustained barrage from McCullough which led to an arm injury.

The win saw McCullough move to 16(10)-3(2) and claim the WBO Inter-Continental title along with a place in the organisation’s rankings.
