Casey eyes Euro belt

Super bantamweight Willie ‘Big Bang’ Casey (8-0, 5 KOs) has targeted the European title after winning the Prizefighter event on Saturday at London’s York Hall. Casey, 28, from Limerick, Ireland, claimed the £32,000 winner’s prize with a unanimous points victory over Scottish substitute Paul McElhinney. McElhinney got his chance in the final after Welshman Ricky Owen was left in tears after a bad cut sustained during his semi-final win denied him a final appearance. “This victory means I’m up there at the top of the division and I’ve proved I can be with the best,” said a delighted Casey, who entered Prizefighter as a short-notice replacement after Wayne McCullough withdrew injured. “I only came here with five fights on my record but I beat everyone against all the odds…the best in Britain were in this competition including Esham Pickering and Jamie Arthur but I’m the one left standing. Who knows what the future holds? I might get a shot at the European title after winning Prizefighter. I’m very proud of everything I’ve done.”
