Creagh is hungry for a return to winning ways

SEAN Creagh is poised to make a return to the ring and, he believes, winning ways, when he lines out in the Boxing Ireland Promotions Celtic Clash 2, The Rising in the National Stadium on May 27.

The Tallaght super lightweight will be eager to bounce back from the only loss in his professional career so far which occurred as a result of a ruptured biceps tendon just two rounds into his Celtic Nations title fight against Tyrone McKenna in Belfast back in November.

Wins in his four previous bouts had placed him on an upward trajectory and he will be aiming to continue on that path next month.

“I was disappointed about getting the injury in such a big fight but I knew that feeling sorry for myself was pointless” said Creagh.

“I just got straight back into the gym, I could only use one hand but it didn’t matter as the important thing was to stay fit.

“Staying in shape and maintaining a healthy lifestyle allowed me to recover fast from what was a serious arm injury” he explained.

Joining him on this bill will be fellow Tallaght man Carl McDonald who will be making his Dublin debut, having already secured his first professional win in Belfast back in October.

Trained by Eddie Hyland, much is expected of McDonald, who back in 2015 won the Irish Intermediate champion-ships.

Having stepped through the ropes at the National Stadium on many occasions as an amateur, McDonald is delighted with the opportunity to now fight as a professional at the renowned South Circular Road venue.

“I’ve been lucky enough to fight in the stadium loads of times as an amateur, but it’s like a new experience to climb back through the ropes as a professional,” he said.
