Woolery Take on MTK Hot Prospect
BcB's Anthony Woolery took on MTK's unbeaten fighter Paul McCullagh on the undercard of at MTK show in Bolton (17.4.21). The show was being streamed live and free on the ILTV YouTube site. The fight was McCullagh's second fight after stopping his first opponent. The fight was scheduled for 4 three-minute rounds in the Light Heavyweight division with McCullagh came in 12 stone 9 and Woolery came in 12 stone 11.
Both fighters had their moments in the first round as they felt each other out. Everything McCullagh did came off the jab while ‘The Bull’ moved well and pressed with good combinations. In the second McCullagh worked well off his jab and took the center of the ring using nice combinations to keep Woolery on the back foot. Woolery pressed when he could but the better boxing came from McCullagh.
McCullagh stuck to his boxing in the third and banged in some cracking combinations. Woolery took them Well and pressed forward when he could. McCullagh continued to box well with everything coming off the jab, Woolery covered up well just waiting for an opening to get a big shot in but it never came.
The ref scored it 40 to 36 to McCullagh myself I had it 40 to 37 McCullagh.
Well, Woolery did what he came to do, put MTK's hot prospect through his paces and that’s what he did. Woolery gave McCullagh a very hard test especially for only his second fight and kept the fight engaging for all 4 rounds. It was great to see ‘The Bull’ so trim at light Heavyweight but the one fight I do want to see Woolery in is at Cruiserweight for the Midlands area against BcB stablemate Matt Sen. This fight has been talked about for a while now and when the small hall shows to come back I can’t see why this could not happen. I really look forward to that contest.
