Sean Creagh thinks people got to see a “different” side to him in Citywest Headliner

Sean Creagh [7(2)-1(1)] feels he made a statement at the Citywest on Friday night and is now ready for bigger and better things.

The Tallaght light welter topped a bill for the first time in his career on the inaugural SK Promotions show and was more than happy with how he performed on ‘Next Generation.’

‘Creaghzy Horse’ outpointed Ferenc Jarko over six rounds and suggests he put on a better show against the Hungarian than fellow Dub Stephen Carroll, a fighter he has been linked heavily to in the past.

The 28 year old claims he bullied a fighter that gave ‘Shortty’, who is now retired, a tough workout and was happy he impressed coach Eddie Hyland.

“My performance was good,” he noted. “Eddie was delighted I was doing things we had been working on in the gym. I think people saw a different Sean Creagh. It was a more relaxed performance and I used my jab more,” Creagh told Irish-boxing.com.

“I think because I knew I had him hurt I got bit right hand happy. I was eager to get him out of there, but overall I am happy and I think I made a bit of statement.”

“I was told Shortty had a war with him and he gave Shortty a hard fight, but I bullied the lad from start. He didn’t want to know at all. He fought [Lewis] Crocker too but he is a welterweight so you can’t really compare. Crocker got the lad out there so he done a number on him.”

Topping the bill was another bonus for Killinarden’s Creagh. He brought over 100 fans to the venue near his home and believes that can be improved on the next time he takes to the ring.

“It was great topping the bill. I done over 100 tickets again and there was a few parties on that people would normally come to the fights had to go to so next time I will do over that, especially if i’ts a bigger fight and I think every fight from here will be bigger.”

Creagh reveals he is set to announce a new management team moving forward and believes that link up will play a part in what he hopes will be a big 2018.

“I will have some good news regarding management in next day or so. So I am excited.”

“I am planning a big year next year with a team that has interest in their fighters and not just money and greed.”
