Gary Cully says strength is improving all the time

RINGSIDE 28/03/2019

Much-avoided Irish lightweight Gary Cully has revealed he makes weight with ease despite his huge frame and is gaining strength all the time.

The Naas southpaw (7-0-KO4) returns to action on Friday night in Belfast, where he battered Mohammed Kambuluta to a first-round stoppage back in December.

With title fights now in his sights, the 6ft 2in Cully has issued an enthusiastic bulletin on recent improvements under trainer Peter Taylor.

Cully said: “I’m growing into the weight quite well and my power is still developing. I’m still not fully grown into it and I’m still making the weight easy. 

“I’ve no plans to move up in weight any time soon – I want to win a title or two at lightweight to start with. My strength is definitely improving every camp.

“I think since my last fight I’m bringing it back to what I’m good at, which is boxing, rather than just standing and going for power all the time. I’ve brought it back to basics.

“I’ve improved on my feinting and my skills rather than sitting down on every shot trying to go for knockouts.

“I’ve never fought in Ulster Hall but from what I’m hearing, it’s great. I saw McComb saying it’s his favourite venue. When it fills up, I imagine the atmosphere in there will be electric.”

Joining Cully on a colossal bill headlined by the mouth-watering Conrad Cummings vs. Luke Keeler WBO European title rematch are the likes of Steven Donnelly, Sean McComb, Tyrone McKenna and many more.
