Gary Cully has signed a long-term promotional deal with Eddie Hearn.
The 26-year-old Irishman stopped former IBF lightweight world champion, Miguel Vazquez, last time out.
Cully is trained by Pete Taylor and Niall Barrett and fights out of the Colosseum Gym and Unit 3 Fitness.
And the undefeated puncher (14-0, 8 KOs) is eager to add to his glittering beginning as a pro having agreed a deal with Matchroom Boxing that will see his fights screened exclusively live on DAZN.
“I’ve had my sights set on joining Matchroom long before I turned professional so to finally be here is massive for me.
“My last fight was on a Matchroom card back in March –– the huge Wood vs. Conlan bill.
“I saw how they did things and it reminded me that this is where I wanted to be. I’m glad to finally get it over the line.”
Cully turned over after a top amateur stint and is targeting big fights and big nights in his bid to become a world champion.
“I’ve got big dreams in boxing. I want to be involved in the biggest fights with the biggest names. I want the likes of Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia and Devin Haney.
“With Eddie and Matchroom backing me, I’m in the right place to make these fights happen.
“I also have big dreams of bringing big-time boxing home one day [and] the ball is in my court now.”
In other news, Hearn and Matchroom have also confirmed the signing of Australia’s Stevie Spark.
The 25-year-old from Toowoomba in Queensland turned professional in 2014 while still a teenager and will be back in action later this year as the global expansion of the Brentwood-based company goes down under.
