Ready to Rock and Roe – Dublin prospect ready to perform for home fans

Those in the know having being telling us to keep an eye out for Bernard Roe, but tonight Irish boxing fans get the chance to run the rule over the Dublin light middleweight and make their own mind up on his potential.
Roe turned over in September of last year, but has had to travel to get fights. Three points win in England have followed and now the Dub gets to fight in front of home support for the first time.
The 25 year old takes onĀ Marcin Cybulski on the FS Promotions/Ricky Hatton show in the National Stadium tonight, and is excited to be fighting at home.
“I’m very excited about getting back in there again at the Stadium and showing people how far I’ve come.”

“Fighting at home makes no difference in terms of camp,Ā preparationĀ or my performance
Ā I know what has to be done and I’m confident I have the skills to do it.”

“In saying that I’m looking to put on a good display and excite the fans. I plan to show them what I’m capable of and that there will be more to come,”Ā he told Irish-boxing.com before suggesting that he is confident FS Promotions’s introduction to Irish boxing could open the door to more home bouts.

“It has to be said FS Promotions are doing great things for Irish boxing at the moment, and it’s looking like it’s only gonna bet better. I would like to be a part of that.”
Roe enters the ring for the first time in Ireland, and like most the fighters on the card, while his opponent reflects his relative novice status, he is a step up in class.
Roe, however is more excited than worried by the step up and promised his foe a tough night.
He’s a good opponent with a winning record and I’m excited about that but I know the fights only going one way and he’s in for a tough night.”
