McCullough up against Kovacs in German bout

By Staff Reporter

Belfast Featherweight contender Marc McCullough will now box Hungary's durable Zoltan Kovacs in Bielefeld, Germany on Thursday on Thursday.

McCullough, the WBO World number four ranked featherweight, was due to feature in the chief support bout to Spain's Ruddy Encarnacion's European (EBU) featherweight title challenge at the Palacio de Vistalegre in Madrid last night.

But with that show being pulled due to promotional issues, McCullough now co-headlines in a ten-round contest against Kovacs.

The twenty-two year old Zoltan 'Caramel' Kovacs is well known to British fight fans having taken London's super featherweight prospect Mitchell Smith the ten-round distance in November of last year.

The Hungarian will be intent on ruining McCullough's title hopes.

Cyclone Promotions have big plans for McCullough should he successfully negotiate the tough Kovacs, with two championship fights planned before the end of 2015.
