The Irish fighter Katie Taylor's father Peter in his corner on Saturday night and now the Kildare native will now fight on the undercard of Katie Taylor v Amanda Serrano on May 20th this year.
The fight has been scheduled for the 3Arena, which holds around 9,000 people.
The 27-year-old has also welcomed the Irish support that will be at the bout.
"You've seen the reception I got here in Nottingham tonight, wait until we go home to Dublin and the Irish people how they turn out there and how they support me. It's going to be magic."
Cully's next fight could be against IBO world title holder Maxi Hughes or multiweight world champion Jorge Linares at the event, but that is yet to be decided.
