McCullough to challenge for Warrington’s title on February 27th?

Marco McCullough hopes to make an appearance on the massive Frampton versus Quigg February 2th7 bill and would like to challenge for the Commonwealth title at the Manchester Arena.

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn has said he expects the Cyclone Promotions fighter to make up one of the undercard fights, and although it has yet to be officially confirmed, it seems certain the John Breen puncher will trade leather on the massive fight night.

Speaking to Irish-boxing.com McCullough expressed a desire to fight for the Commonwealth title, and it has been indicated the former Irish champion will challenge for the strap on February 27th.

Popular Leeds boxer Josh Warrington, a fighter McCullough has said he would love to face, is the current Commonwealth custodian, but Hearn told irish-boxing.com at last week’s press conference in Belfast that Warrington won’t appear in Manchester.

Considering Warrington holds the European title, it is conceivable that he could vacate or be stripped of the strap, freeing McCullough up to challenge for it.
