The only thing Creagh would break is his winning streak claims McKenna

Top Pro Gif AdTyrone McKenna [10(3)-0-1] claims there is no truth to the rumours he will fight Sean Creagh [4(2)-0] for a title in Belfast this November.

The boxing rumour mill churned out a possible welterweight Belfast versus Dublin clash and suggested it would take place on the yet to be officially confirmed Frank Warren November Belfast show.

McKenna claims the first he heard of the bout was when published a story on it – but does admit he would be open it and that it would act as a step up.

“It’s all just rumour unfortunately. There hasn’t been a word on who I am fighting or that. I am not even 100 percent certain I will be on that show,” he told before commenting on Creagh.

“Of course if Sean was put to me and offered as an opponent I would jump at the chance. Everyone loves an all-Irish domestic fight and it would be a god step up for me. Plus my next fight in Birmingham will hopefully be an eight rounder,  if it is, I will be eligible for titles. Hopefully a title fight could be made.”

Creagh sang of a similar hymn sheet when asked about McKenna, and predicted he would break the MGM fighter down en route to win if the fight was made.

The Belfast 26 year old southpaw disagrees however, stating that the only thing that would break if they met would be the Dubliner’s duck egg.

“Creaghsy can make all the predictions he wants. Saying he’ll break me? The only thing he’ll break is his winning streak!”

Whether or not the pair will meet remains to be seen, and- although he won’t admit it –  McKenna is a cert for the Belfast show. If, as expected, he is on the show, ‘The Mighty Celt’ will relish a homecoming, having not fought at home since August of last year.

“I love fighting in Belfast and having a great crowd behind me. If I am on the card and was fighting the likes of Sean or another undefeated fighter the tickets would fly out the door. That appeals to me, as you know I want the hard fights.”
