Undefeated Irish star Gary Cully will now take on former Welsh Area lightweight champion Craig Woodruff as part of an #MTKFightNight at Production Park Studios in Wakefield on August 26.
The fight between Irish champion Cully (10-0, 5 KOs) and Woodruff (10-5, 4 KOs) will be shown live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV.
Woodruff is on a three-fight win streak and replaces Kieran Gething in the fight, but Cully isn’t let the change of opponent alter his focus.
Cully said: “It doesn’t matter who I’m in the ring with on the night, I just prepare myself to the best of my ability and I’m looking forward to being back.
“I know a bit about Woodruff. The fight was talked about about around a year ago, so I had a look at him back then. I’ve seen his fight with Gething, and Woodruff is a lot better than his record suggests.
“I think it’s a lot trickier than the Gething fight would have been, as Woodruff has a more awkward style, so it’s something that I have to adapt to and overcome.
“He’s 6 foot, so it’s going to be a bit different to most of my usual fights where I’m much taller than my opponents, but I’m in the gym every day sparring a mix of everybody, so I’m ready for any style.”
Cully vs. Woodruff is part of a huge event on August 26, which is headlined by Lewis Crocker facing Louis Greene for the WBO European welterweight title.
