Marco McCullough claims KO defeat will make him stronger

Marco McCullough claims he will come back stronger from his surprise first round defeat in Germany when he returns to the ring in Scotland next month.

The Belfast ticket seller was stopped by Zoltan Kovacs within two minutes of a shock July defeat, but is determined to put the reverse and experience behind him.

The Irish and WBO European featherweight title holder hopes to turn what looked a major negative into a positive as he bids to return to the title mix.

The Cyclone Promotions puncher makes his comeback on a card that also features the Celtic Super Featherweight title clash between Belfast’s Anthony Cacace and Dundee’s Ronnie Clark- and is pleased with the chance to return to winning ways.

“I’m pleased to be back in action again. It was a gutting loss for me in the last fight but all great champions have to go through things like that,” said McCullough.

“I have learnt from that fight and am now looking to get myself back in the mix.

“I know I can come back stronger and October 16 in Edinburgh is the start of that journey for me.
