Naas boxer Cully looking to impress promoters on massive night of fighting in Belfast
21:00 Friday 17th of November 2017

Naas boxer Gary Cully is back in the ring tomorrow night, and the highly rated lightweight is looking to secure his third win on the trot when he features on the undercard of the much anticipated 'Frampton Reborn' card in Belfast.

Cully will be competing on front of a massive crowd at the SSE Odyssey Arena in the Northern Irish city, and he has quickly become a favourite among fans up north after his stunning 42 second knockout of Hungarian Gyualla Tolossi on his debut, before dominating and stopping Josh Thorne last month at the same venue.

This time around the opponent for Saturday night's fight is not yet known, though Cully weighed in at 9st 10pds on Friday afternoon ahead of the bout, with the officials stating that his opponent will weigh in later.

The 21-year-old Naas man now wants to grab the attention of promoter Frank Warren after impressing Eddie Hearn last month, and another dominant performance would surely have the money men circling.

“My message to Frank is get to me before Eddie gets there first,” Cully told ahead of his four rounder.

“Ah no, I just hope Frank gets a chance to watch me the same as Eddie did.”

“I’m looking to put on a good performance and impress these guys, so I just hope he’s watching and I’ll show my message in the ring .”

It's a big card to feature on tomorrow night as Cully joins Belfast favourite Carl Frampton, while Jamie Conlan - older brother of Olympic star Michael - will be boxing for a world title. Add to the mix a scheduled 10-round Intercontinental Strap bout for Paddy Barnes and former St Michael's Athy boxer David Oliver Joyce boxing in his fifth pro fight, and you have one action-packed night of boxing ahead.
