Marc McCullough is gunning for fellow Belfast featherweight James Tennyson in the coming months.

McCullough put on an impressive performance at the Waterfront Hall on Friday night to see off Spain’s Sergio Prado on points.

The Belfast fighter looked back to near his best and he says he would love to meet Tennyson sooner, rather than later.

“There is talk of him in an eliminator for the British title and if I had the Commonwealth title, it would be a fight for down the line.

“We could fight for both titles - but we will have to wait and see.

“I am hoping to be on the Carl Frampton fight in Manchester on February 27 and hopefully it is for a title.

“So I am heading straight back into camp.”

At what did he make about this performance against Prado.

“He was tricky and hard to hit and a step up in class, but it shows I can mix it at that level.

“I was pleased because I stuck to my boxing and was not dragged into a fight. It was good to get another win on my record,” he added.
