McCullough open to all Belfast title fight

Marco McCullough would welcome an all Belfast bust up with fellow featherweight James Tennyson next year.

The ticket selling John Breen puncher had been name dropped by Team ‘Tenny’ in the build up to his All On The Line clash on Friday night and after his impressive win over former European title challenger Sergio Prado, McCullough admitted a match up, that after the success of Conrad Cummings versus Alfredo Meli has becoming all the more appealing to fight fans, was a fight that interests him.

Tennyson, who like McCullough claimed the Irish featherweight title, will most likely fight an British title eliminator against Darren Traynor in February, while McCullough hopes to fight on the massive Frampton versus Quigg card in the same month.

If both come through those tests, or both were to pick up domestic straps, McCullough would more than welcome a big Belfast derby.

“There is talk of him in an eliminator for the British title and if I had the Commonwealth title, it would be a fight for down the line.”

“We could fight for both titles – but we will have to wait and see.”

“I am hoping to be on the Carl Frampton fight in Manchester on February 27 and hopefully it is for a title.”

“So I am heading straight back into camp.”
