Marco McCullough put himself in pole position to win Knockout of the Year with a brilliant finish at the Ulster Hall on Friday night.
The former British title challenger sparked his career back into life by sparking out Declan Geraghty in the third round of an IBF European ranking title fight.
The 29 year old set up a right hand with a well timed jab against southpaw opposition, landed right on the button to send his opponent to the canvas in dramatic fashion.
The knockout win is made more impressive by the level of opposition it came against and the significance of the fight.
The fight was billed as a 50/50 crossroad fight meaning the pressure was on for both and the Belfast fighter was up against a slick southpaw and noted stylist.
However, just when it looked like ‘Prettyboy’ was about to take control of proceedings McCullough landed the best shot of his career.
