Former Illies Golden Gloves boxer Tyrone McCullagh will train under Pete Taylor in Ballyfermot ahead of the Sky Sports-televised Golden Contract series.
The light-welterweight was training in Scotland, working with Danny Vaughan. McCullagh is looking forward to the Golden Contract semi finals and is just two wins away from a massive five fight deal with a promoter rumoured to be Top Rank.
The semifinals are due early next year, and the final in May/June.
Competitors will not know their opponents until the week of the fight – early next year – when the draw is made.
In October, McCullagh eased to a unanimous decision win over Razak Najib to earn a place in the semi-finals. He was never in trouble over the ten rounds as he avoided trouble and soared into the featherweight semis.
The Glen Road man won on 97-93, 98-92, 96-94 scores from the judges at York Hall, Bethnal Green.
