Marc McCullough

With his career on the line, Marco McCullough scored the biggest win of his life last month.

The Shankill super feather sensationally stopped Dubliner Declan Geraghty in a big all-Irish clash at the Ulster Hall.

McCullough landed the perfect right hand in the third round of their IBF European ranking title fight which put Geraghty out for the count and sets him up for further big nights.


Coming in second was Belfast light welterweight Sean McComb who scored a major statement win over Miroslav on the same card while headliner Ryan Burnett finished third following his comeback win over Jelbirt Gomera.
