Cully V Fitzpatrick
We don’t normally cover BUI Irish title fights but we had to make an exception for this fight as both of these fighters participated in FV360’s segment A Fighters Journey, but it has been a while since we have been able to speak to them as Matchroom and Queensbury stopped us from speaking to fighters backstage. Both guys are great fighters and guys so I am expecting an exciting fight from this one. The fight is taking place in the iconic and historic Ulster Hall were many a great fight has been seen.
Both fighters come into the fight unbeaten and Joe holds the current BUI Irish Lightweight belt after he won it against Iago Barros in December, Fitzpatrick has a solid Amateur career behind him and his biggest achievement came when he won a Silver medal in the commonwealth games in 2014, he is a slick southpaw fighter who has stopped the majority of his opponents and he comes into this fight wanting to prove he is the best lightweight fighter on the Island of Ireland by fighting the best opponents out there.
Like Joe, Cully is regarded as one of the best prospects to come out of Ireland, with a solid Amateur career behind him, he was tipped for big things at the Olympics but choose instead to go Pro and he has went from strength to strength, looking better ever time he enters the ring. A member of the famous Peter Taylor Bray gym, he will be looking to make it a double success on the night as he stablemate Davey Oliver Joyce is on the card as well.
With both fighters being Southpaw it should make for an interesting fight, and with the height and reach advantage going the way of Cully it could be quite a tactical fight as Joe will have to find a way to get in the inside to land the big punches and not get tangled up.
Now is a good a time as any to announce our recent partnership with Boxstats.co, which means every article we write moving forward will have these new stats to go along with the article.
As I mentioned earlier Cully stablemate and another fighter we have worked with in the past Davey Oliver Joyce fights for the WBO European Super bantamweight title against Lee Haskins, this is a good and hard fight for former Olympian after he bounces back from the loss at the Matchroom Golden Contract event. The last time Haskins fought on Belfast soil he lost to the impressive and now retired Ryan Burnett, so again this is another great looking matchup and should def be a great fight.
We wish the three guys we have worked with the best of luck and in the Fitzpatrick V Cully bout, there has to be one winner so hopefully it is a great fight and may the best man win, but we will continue to follow both their careers no matter what.
