Gary Corcoran

Gary Corcoran 17-2-0 (7KOs) is a talented welterweight from Wembley.

Corcoran could not wait to leave the amateur game behind and turned professional at the young age of 21, after winning the prestigious Haringey Box Cup twice.

He made his professional debut at Wembley Arena in May 2011, when he defeated Billy Smith on points. His career has gone from strength to strength since, racking up 14 successive victories, six of which came by knockout, culminating with winning the WBO Inter-Continental super-welterweight title.

The 26-year-old earned his nickname “Hellraiser” when he beat Bolton’s previously unbeaten Rick Godding by unanimous decision at Wembley Arena.

He has big ambitions and has already challenged for the British title in an electrifying contest with rival Liam Williams, resulting in his one and only career defeat.

"Hellraiser" bounced back with two straight wins, one by knockout and the other to claim the vacant WBO Inter-Continental welterweight title, propelling him into the top-10 in the WBO world rankings. That placement gained Gary a shot at the world champion Jeff Horn in Australia on December 15.
