Wayne McCullough, the 34-year-old from Belfast, believes he can finally realise his dream of becoming a two-time world champion when he challenges Oscar Larios for the WBC super-bantamweight title tomorrow evening in California.

Since winning the WBC bantamweight title in 1995, McCullough has lost super-bantamweight title challenges to Mexicans Daniel Zaragoza and Erik Morales, and WBO featherweight bouts to Naseem Hamed and to Scott Harrison.

"He won't know what hit him," McCullough said yesterday. "He's a good champion but he's not in the class of Hamed, Morales or Zaragoza and I gave them all hard fights. It's the last chance for me and I intend to get that second world title I have always dreamed about."
