Marc McCullough will look to relaunch his career at the Lift-Off show in Edinburgh on October 16.

Shankill Road boxer McCullough is making his comeback to the ring following a recent shock defeat in Germany.

The Irish Featherweight champion on a card that also features the Celtic Super Featherweight title clash between Belfast’s Anthony Cacace and Dundee’s Ronnie Clark.

Former WBO European Featherweight champion McCullough was caught cold in his last bout in Germany, suffering a first round defeat to Hungary’s Zoltan Kovacs.

And McCullough knows he has to get back to winning ways.

“I’m pleased to be back in action again. It was a gutting loss for me in the last fight but all great champions have to go through things like that.

“I have learnt from that fight and am now looking to get myself back in the mix.

“I know I can come back stronger and October 16 in Edinburgh is the start of that journey for me.

“I cannot wait to get back in the ring and get back to doing what I do best, winning,” he added.
