Darren stared training at ProKick at the start of 2009 and since then has had 20 fights with three of those fights back to back just under 3 weeks. He had his first bout in 12-04-2010 but due to an unrelated shoulder injury, was unfortunately out of action for almost a year. Darren holds a purple belt in the syllabus side of the sport and now is back in full swing after shoulder, knee and hand injuries. He prepared himself for a big fight on June 30th he faced Sean O’Neill at ProKick's kickboxing 'Summer of Kicks' at the Holiday Inn Belfast June 30th. O'Neill from Waterford is one of Ireland's top Full-Contact fighters with a list of fights larger than a who's who column. Fight-fans saw one of the best full-contact fights here for a long time - it was dubbed - 'King of the Celtic middleweights' September 2014 saw The Ice Man won his first World Title at the Lords of the Ring event held in Belfast`s Ulster Hall. The Ice Man had his first bout of 2015 during the Total Divas event held at the Holiday Inn on 29th March. It was a prestige match and McMullan won on points. Darren has taken a year out of kickboxing to travel to Australia. He defended and retained his title on the KICKmas 2015 bill at the Calyton Hotel Belfast against Lukasz Paprocki (Poland). We wish Darren all the best on his new adventure and look forward to seeing him back in the gym in 2017.
