Marc McCullough was delighted to secure the WBO European Featherweight belt in a hard-fought win over previously undefeated Slovak Martin Parlagi.

"It was a real challenge," he said, after his fight went the full 10 rounds and was won on points.

"I felt the blood running down my face ... I'm glad it went the 10 rounds though."

Jamie Conlan successfully defended his recent WBO European Super-Flyweight belt against Hungary's Gabor Molnar.

But he's already thinking about what's next.

"The British title - I'm licking my lips at the thought of it," he said.

Conlan is also looking for more international action.

"We need to move on from the European scene - maybe go up against a Mexican who's going to take those punches for 10 or 12 rounds. Yeah, an all Mexican fight," he joked.

Tyrone's Conrad Cummings put Hungarian Lajos Munkacsi on the floor just 55 seconds into round two of what was only his third professional fight.

"I'm delighted to really showcase what I'm about," he said.

"I needed to show how good I could be and my dynamite power."

In the first of top four main fights, Limerick's Willie Casey defeated Poland's Krzystof Rogowski on points over six rounds.

And Conall Carmichael had earlier defeated Uganda's Moses Matovu over four rounds in an international Cruiserweight contest.
