Sweet second victory for White Chocolate

Tyrone McCullagh made it two stoppage wins from two in the pro game at the weekend. The Derry featherweight was in action at the York Hall in London and put away Hungarys Bence Sipos early in the second of four scheduled rounds.

Making his debut under the promotional banner of Goodwin Boxing, ‘White Chocolate’ wasted no time in what was an impressive win at the historic venue.

It was a second second round stoppage for the charismatic fighter after his win against Tamas Laska during the Summer.

25 year old McCullagh, a former senior champ, is developing an exciting style in the paid game and is certainly one to watch out for in 2016.

Saturday’s card, titled ‘The Cartel, was topped by light middleweight Sonny Upton who won an English title eliminator against Ryan Toms.
