Could Dylan Tuke be the next big thing to come out of SBG?

What a debut

Darragh Murphy

As he bounced around the cage, you could sense that there was something special imminent from Dylan Tuke.

The bantamweight made his professional debut against Adam Caffrey at Saturday night’s BAMMA 22 in the 3Arena but held the air of a wily veteran, unfazed by the occasion.

The Nuke carried every bit of the excited energy into the opening seconds of the bout as he kept the shorter fighter at bay with a series of punishing jabs that bloodied Caffrey’s nose.

Tuke started to mix it up with some teeps before initiating a takedown against the cage.

Caffrey looked visibly shaken as the SBG prospect patiently started pursuing the choke as cornermen John Kavanagh and Paddy Holohan shouted instructions.

Tuke listened and sunk his forearm under Caffrey’s chin and earned the tap at 3:27 of the first round.

Needless to say, those in attendance were impressed.
