Belfast featherweight Marco McCullough [15(9)-3(2)] will appear on the Boxnation show at the Titanic Exhibition Centre on November 5th.

The hugely popular 26 year old confirmed on social media that he will feature on the card as he looks to continue rebuilding following his Commonwealth title loss to Isaac Lowe on the Frampton v Quigg undercard in February.

McCullough made his return to the ring last Thursday with a comfortable win over Simas Volosinas over six rounds on an MGM dinner show at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow.

In his last appearance in his home city, McCullough scored an impressive ten-round points win over former EU champion Sergio Prado.

The show at the Titanic Exhibition Centre will be headlined by Commonwealth super flyweight champion Jamie Conlan, who will defend his rainbow belt against a to-be-confirmed opponent. Tipperary heavyweight Con Sheehan is currently the only other fighter confirmed for the undercard, although double Olympic bronze medalist Paddy Barnes is heavily rumoured to be making his debut on the show.

November 5th promises to be a massive night for Irish boxing, with Red Corner Promotions’s debut show also taking place at the National Stadium in Dublin.
