If Sean Creagh wants to fulfill his title dreams he feels needs a foe that will come to Dublin with ambitions of winning on June 25th.
In Gyula Tallosi [11(7)-9(7)] he might just have secured that. Granted the Hungarian, who the Tallaght man faces in the National Stadium on ‘The Future’ card, has lost every time he has stepped up in class, but he comes to Ireland with a winning record, seven knock outs to his name, and is a level above your average journey man.
The fact he has also shared the ring with Joe Murray, Boy Jones and Ryan Davis provides Creagh with the chance to compare his progress to fellow prospects.
The 27 year old, who is unbeaten in three fights, is hoping to fight Stephen Carroll foor either the Celtic Nations or Irish title before the year is out, and was calling for some form of test before that clash.
Tallosi probably represents the biggest step in class a 4-0 fighter with no extensive amateur background can take.
The bout will play out over four rounds, which suggests both Carroll and Creagh may have to wait until December before competing in title action. The pair will mostly likely step up to six rounds on the proposed September FS Promotions card, before a competing against each other in a Christmas cracker for the Celtic Nations title, with a view to an Irish title rematch (if warranted) in 2017.
