The teenager has made a blistering start to life as a senior boxer, winning all three of the international tournaments he has competed in this year.
The Renfrewshire boxer beat Ukraine’s Dmytro Kolisnichenko via a 4-1 split decision, although in truth there was little dispute in the result, with the English judge being the only one to go against him.
Neither boxer was keen to over commit in the first round of the 54kg Final, although a couple of straight right hands from Cullen late in the round helped to edge the round to him from a majority of the judges.
The 19-year-old, who has now competed in 7 international Finals in the past 18 months, continued to edge the contest from a majority of the judges in the second round against the Ukrainian southpaw, although the bout remained cagey.
Kolisnichenko came out aggresive in the third round knowing that he was trailing on the cards, however that created some opportunities for Cullen on the counter as he landed a number of clean blows.
The official scores were 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 29-28, 28-29 as the newest member of the GB Boxing squad continued his excellent form.
Boxing Scotland Performance Director and National Coach Craig McEvoy said: “Aaron took the first round to work his opponent out, but he then implemented a smart pattern of movement and punch selection which turned into a convincing win.”
