He is a former world champion, a throwback to the days when fighters came into the ring to fight and gave everything they had before stepping back through the ropes. He is "The Pocket Rocket", and Goossen Tutor Promotions is pleased to announce the signing of featherweight contender Wayne McCullough to a promotional contract. "I not only had the pleasure of working with Wayne back in the America Presents days, but I also promoted his first fight at the Reseda Country Club in 1993," said Dan Goossen of Goossen Tutor Promotions. "I'm honored to be working with him again, and there is no question in my mind that he has what it takes to make a lot of noise in the featherweight division in the future." McCullough (26-4, 17 KOs) is a native of Belfast, Ireland, who now makes his home in Las Vegas. A Silver medallist in the 1992 Olympics, McCullough has also enjoyed great success in the pro ranks, having won the WBC and NABF bantamweight crowns, and challenged for the super bantamweight, jr.featherweight and featherweight titles during his 11 year career. A no-nonsense competitor in the ring, McCullough is known not only for his exciting fights, but for having perhaps the sturdiest chin in boxing history - a chin that has never been dented, even by such standouts as Erik Morales, Naseem Hamed, and recent Hall of Famer Daniel Zaragoza. "Wayne has gone toe-to-toe with boxing's best for over a decade," said Goossen. "He's what you want every fighter to be - hard nosed and willing to go to battle for every minute of every round. No fan has ever been disappointed by a Wayne McCullough fight." A date, venue, and opponent for McCullough's next bout will be announced shortly.
