Prediction,

Good match, always good to see a battle of the unbeatens.

This is Scotland vs Northern Ireland, unbeaten fighters who are at least 10-0, I think it is good that this is for the Celtic title.

This is a 50/50 fight.
You might lean towards Ham, because he has had a few more fights, has more general professional experience.
The onlt previous title fight between them was Ham's fight for a Scottish area title.
Ham has had a 10 round fight, been the full 10, but apart from that, it has been 4 rounds, and 6 rounds, but the majority of McCullagh's 10 fights have been 4 rounds, so Ham, with the slightly better experience, but only slightly, especially given the level of opponent in that one title fight.

McCullagh does have the home advantage, that could impact the judges, maybe he will get some extra motivation from the crowd. McCullagh has never had a title fight, but he has had an 8 round scheduled fight, Ham has had one 10 rounder, but no others above 6. The 8 round fight McCullagh had was against Tom Tran, unbeaten at the time, in 6 fights. Both these guys have fought opponents with losing records in the majority of their fights, but out of all the opponents' records, Tran, being 6-0, that seems like the best win between them even though it wasn't a title fight.
In general, Ham and McCullagh have faced similarly poor opponents a lot of the time, for Ham, 11/14 opponents have had losing records, for McCullagh, 6/10 opponents have had losing records. Out of the two, in terms of who's opponents had the poorer records, who fought the opponents with the most losses, although there isn't so much in it, you would have to say McCullagh's opposition has been stronger.

Ham has 36% KOs, McCullagh has 60%, given their similarity in experience levels, I think you can definitely assume McCullagh is the puncher in this fight.

There are no age advantages in this fight, both are 27, both in their primes.

Ham might not seem that much more experienced than McCullagh in fights, but he has doen basically double the rounds McCullagh has, and of course, McCullagh, never done the full 5, Ham has been the full 10.

It is a tough one to call, but I think McCullagh will win, I don't think he'll stop Ham, and I think it will be a close, competitive, entertaining fight, but I think McCullagh will win a UD.

Hope this is as good as Coyle vs Benson was.

McCullagh was just too much for Ham.

What a good boxer is Tyrone McCullagh! not a puncher, but doesn't lack power, there is sharpness and snap behind the shots, but it is his speed, combination punching, and footwork, getting in and out of distance, moving so well, that was a masterclass performance from McCullagh against a guy with the same record as him and an opponent who was prepared. Ham tried his best, at the end of round 3, he was brilliant with that right hand, McCullagh was hurt, but Ham couldn't build on it, he tried, but he kept missing and getting caught on the counter, he tried to stop that being the case, but the more he tried, the more he seemee to get out pointed, and he wasn't in the sams class as his opponent. McCullagh is easily good enough to win a British title in ny opinion! I think he beats the winner of Dickens vs Ward.
