The Belfast welter took on the unbeaten Tamuka Mucha at the Wembley Arena and fell to a majority decision loss (95:95, 94:97 x2).
The Pat Man made a strong start and had a brave finish, but the busier Zimbabwean banked enough rounds to run our a close winner. Indeed the Reading-based boxer adapted well to Gallagher’s big-hitting style and deserved the victory.
Gallagher won many plaudits for his performance in what was the Fight of the Night and will be a Fight of the Year contender at year’s end, and the popular Lenadoon man will not be too adversely affected by the loss
