Caoimhin Agyarko [8(5)-0] wants to challenge for a title when he returns to the ring in 2021.
The Belfast middle cemented his status as a prospect to watch out for with a stoppage win over Robbie Chapman last time out.
The keen-to-kick-on fighter initially cooled talk on big step up talk directly after his eighth consecutive pro win, suggesting there was time to develop and learn.
However, speaking more recently, the 25-year-old, who has seen the chance to take some scalps fall through, revealed he is hopeful of going straight into title action.
Agyarko wants a ranking title fight in February.
“I’m hopeful that I will be fighting again in February and a title could be on the line. I’d like a title that will start pushing me up the world rankings,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.
Reflecting on the win, which came as a result of the middleweight stepping it up incrementally round by round, Agyarko surmised it was his best display.
A performance that came on the back of the pro experienced banked.
“I thought the win over Chapman was probably my best performance so far because I was more patient and I showed that I’m becoming more professional.
“In my previous fight against Jez Smith I started too quickly and tired in rounds four and five, just because I kind of started at an amateur pace. So, I learned from that and I took my time more and got the stoppage and never tired at all.”
It was another win and stoppage that earned the Belfast fighter praise.
Agyarko promises there is more to come and will work to ensure he continues to improve.
“I would still say that it was a 40 per cent Agyarko against Chapman performance-wise because I know how good I can be. I have high expectations and I’m never satisfied.”
