Kellie Maloney is adamant Cathy McAleer [4(1)-1(0)] will learn from her first career defeat and come back stronger and better.
The Belfast bantam hit what looked like it could be a devastating pot hole on ‘The Straightener in the Car Park’ card on Saturday night.
Gabriella Mezei out pointed the kick boxing convert over four rounds, inflicting on her a defeat that at first glance looks like it may threaten a 42-year-old’s career.
However, McAleer’s case is a bit different as are the workings in women’s boxing at present. In supreme shape with big backing, the Antrim bantam can be rebuilt. The big fights with the notable British names are still attainable – while a rematch with Mezei is now something many will want to see.
Not to mention she has the option of competing the first all Irish female professional fight after being called out by Waterford’s Kate Radomska less that 24 hours after her defeat.
Manger Kellie Maloney is also sticking by her and has promised to correct mistakes made in the build up to McAleer’s first career reverse.
Interesting we will look at this i will make the right decision that is best for Cathy‘s career to move forward . A lost is just a Hic cut in anyone’s career. The lost will help the team Correct mistakes and I am know cathy will come back stronger and better. here to 2021— Kellie Maloney (@kelliefmaloney) December 13, 2020
