Tyrone McCullagh has changed his training setup ahead of potentially the biggest year of his professional career to date.
The Derry super-bantamweight, who holds the WBO European title, has a record of 12-0 with six quick.

McCullagh was last in action against Josh Kennedy in October under the tutelage of Derry Mathews, George Vaughan and Gary Thornhill.

But the 27-year-old has left Liverpool and is headed up to Scotland after joining forces with Danny Vaughan and MTK Scotland in Holytown.

“I’m glad to be joining such a promising gym under Danny and it feels more like moving bedrooms than moving houses because the two camps have always worked together,” McCullagh said after the move was made official.

He will be in the gym with former WBC flyweight world title challenger Paddy Barnes as well as Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Sam Maxwell.

Tyrone McKenna and Sean McComb are also among those in the gym with Vaughan’s latest recruit.

“I’ve learned such a huge amount under Georgie Vaughan and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both him and Derry Mathews for all the hard work and knowledge they’ve shared with me,” he continued.

“The time is right for me to join my good friends like Tyrone McKenna, Paddy Barnes and Sean McComb over in Scotland and I’m looking forward to us all pushing each other onwards and upwards towards more titles.”
