A war of words erupted between bitter Irish Welterweight rivals Tyrone McKenna (11-0-1 3 KOs) and Sean Creagh (4-0 2 KOs) at Thursday’s heated press conference at Belfast’s Malone Lodge Hotel. The undefeated foes meet face-to-face in the ring this Saturday, live and exclusive on BoxNation.
McKenna has been a busy boxer lately. Three fights in just over four months have kept the Belfast man extremely active at a pivotal stage of his career. On Saturday McKenna faces the toughest test of his career against the supremely confident Creagh. Both men are putting their undefeated records on the line in what promises to be an explosive contest.
“He hasn’t tasted defeat yet so he’s very confident going into this fight,” said McKenna. “He’s been running his mouth on Twitter in the build-up to Saturday’s fight but he knows deep down that he’s scared of me. He can’t beat me; not a chance.
“After I knock out Sean Creagh I’ll be pushing for domestic titles. This fight isn’t going past four rounds. I’m too good for him and we both know it. I can deal with anything he throws at me; there’s only going to be one winner come Saturday night.”
“I’m really looking forward to this one,” said Creagh. “He says that I’m a White-Collar pro so he better back that up on Saturday. All I can say to Tyrone is you better leave your ASICS at home, you can’t knock me out if your’re on the back foot.
“If you look through his record, who has he fought? He’s only had three stoppage wins in twelve fights. He goes on like he’s Gennady Golovkin but he doesn’t have any power. I can’t wait to show everyone what I’m all about in front of the BoxNation cameras. I’m going to knock Tyrone out.”
