Sean scores Creagh-O at the National Stadium

Sean Creagh sent out a statement tonight to the Irish light welterweight division.

Fighting on ‘The Future card at the National Stadium, Creagh stopped tricky journeyman Gyula Tallosi inside two rounds.

Known for being a dangerous and awkward counterpuncher, the Hungarian was overwhelmed by the non-stop attacking style of Creagh.

Tallosi tried to start fast but the Tallaght tornado tore into his Central European opponent.

The Hungarian was down midway through the round but the borderline hook was ruled low. Creagh quickly went back to work with his machine-gun hooks to the body and Tallosi hit the canvas a second time. Given a count, he survived to see out the round.

Smelling blood, Creagh attacked from the off in the second stanza and quickly had Tallosi down again and while he beat the count, the towel was thrown in after 1:16 of the round.

The stoppage win sees Creagh, a former white collar fighter, improve his record to 4(2)-0. Tallosi, whose ribs will be sore in the morning, falls to 11(7)-10(8).

First up on the night, Creagh certainly put down a marker for rival Dublin prospect Stephen Carroll.
