Marc McCullough cannot believe he is headlining a show at the Waterfront Hall on June 20.

McCullough - a Belfast boy through and through - faces Martin Parlagi for the vacant WBO European Featherweight title at the Belfast venue.

And McCullough who was very impressive in his last two outings says he is filled with pride to be the main attraction at the Cyclone Promotions bill.

“It’s great to be headlining the show and I cannot wait to get in there and get started.

“Usually it’s Carl Frampton’s face that is all over the place - but it was great to see a big bill board with my face on it at the Europa.

“The Waterfront is a great venue and I cannot wait to get in there and get started,” he added.

And what does McCullough know of his opponent Parlagi?

“I have only watched a round of him in action and he beat a guy around the ring.

“He is switch hitter and he is highly thought of and unbeaten, but these are the kind of guys I have to beat if I want to make it to the top,” he added.

A British title shot is on the horizon for McCullough and he is praying that fellow Belfast featherweight Martin Lindsay can see off Josh Warrington when they meet in Leeds next week.

“The British and the Commonwealth title should be on the line next week and I hope Martin wins because it would be a great fight if the two of us met for the titles down the line.But I am totally focused on Parlagi and he is totally focused on Warrington but what an all Belfast clash that would be,” he added.#

And who does McCullough think will win the fight between Lindsay and Warrington?

“I hope Martin wins - but his inactivity could go against him. Warrington is young, fresh and fit, so it will be hard for Martin.If Martin had fought more often he would have been some fighter.”

Jamie Conlan will be in action andConrad Cummings will take part in his second fight as a professional.
