Belfast coach John Breen reckons his featherweight prospect Marc McCullough will learn a lot from his WBO European title victory over Martin Parlagi on Friday, June 20. McCullough was dropped heavily in the fourth round but battled back to outbox his Czech foe. Even though a laceration across the bridge of McCullough’s nose seemed ugly, Breen reckons that his fighter will be back out again on September 6 as part of the Frampton-Martinez undercard.

Belfast trainer John Breen has high hopes for the two leading lights of his gym – Marc McCullough and Jamie Conlan. John reckons that with the right exposure and consistent ring activity the talented pair could aspire to world level. For Breen’s prophecies to come true both men must negotiate past their respective opponents on the April 4 undercard of Frampton-Cazares. McCullough, for one, is expecting to have his hands full with rugged Belarusian Andrei Isaeu in a featherweight 10-rounder for the WBO European strap.
