Former European amateur medallist Tyrone McCullagh ready to take down undefeated German Tran

Tyrone McCullagh claims he is ready to go eight tough rounds against fellow undefeated super-bantamweight Tom Tran in Belfast tonight as the former European amateur medallist insisted: “There is only going to be one winner!"

Derry’s McCullagh (8-0) headlines Ginley Promotions’ ‘Danger at the Devenish 2’ fight bill at the Devenish Complex where a host of MTK Global fighters are in action.

> The 27-year-old Belfast-based southpaw is topping the bill for the second time at the venue, while he is keen to bag some valuable pro experience against Germany’s Tran (6-0).

“I’ve been scheduled for a few six-rounders before but none of them went the distance, so this will be my first time going past four, but I’m as fit as can be so it shouldn’t be a problem,” said McCullagh. 

“I’m ready for anything he brings. I’d like to get a stoppage, but it’ll be good to get some rounds in the bank,” continued the 2010 European Elite amateur medallist.

 “I haven’t seen a whole lot of Tran. There’s a few clips on YouTube and I’ve seen him about as an amateur – we were at a few of the same competitions – but I don’t really read too much into that. 

“I’ll just box away and concentrate on my own performance. There’s only going to be one winner!”
