New York, NY—–Callum Walsh celebrated St. Patrick’s weekend in style with a commanding performance on Friday night, elevating his professional record into double digits at Madison Square Garden’s Theater.

Callum faced off against the spirited Dauren Yeleussinov, older brother of an Olympic medalist, and ultimately secured a ninth-round stoppage victory. While Walsh didn’t overwhelm his opponent into submission, Yeleussinov’s resilience couldn’t mask the accumulation of punishment, leading the referee to intervene and rescue him from further damage and punishment.

Under the guidance of renowned trainer Freddie Roach, Walsh employed a patient and methodical approach, gradually wearing down his opponent enroute to his eighth stoppage win. Despite Yeleussinov’s attempts to frustrate and spoil, Walsh remained composed, showcasing his versatility and precision in the ring.

From the outset, Walsh demonstrated his tactical prowess, utilizing footwork to evade Yeleussinov’s advances while landing calculated strikes. Throughout the early rounds, Walsh’s measured aggression kept Yeleussinov at bay, though the Kazakh fighter remained undeterred, absorbing punishment without faltering.

As the bout progressed, Walsh maintained control, strategically increasing his output and testing Yeleussinov’s durability. Despite glimpses of resistance from the New York-based fighter, Walsh’s dominance became increasingly apparent, culminating in a decisive flurry of punches in the latter rounds.

By the eighth round, Yeleussinov’s resilience began to wane, prompting concern from the referee and ringside doctor. Sensing an opportunity to capitalize, Walsh pressed and pushed the pace, ultimately prompting the referee to halt the contest and award him the victory.

With this impressive performance, Walsh improves his record to 10-0, setting the stage for future endeavors stateside. As he prepares for his next bout, scheduled for early June, Walsh’s ascent in the boxing world appears unstoppable, solidifying his status as a rising star in the sport.
