Carter wants a fight in Ireland – doesn’t mind being ‘an opponent’

Tommy Carter [0-1(0)] fights tomorrow night in Manchester and has further dates scheduled, but the middleweight would love to fight back in Ireland in the near future.

Irish Tommy’s father hails from Drogheda, and won an Irish underage title with the Holy Family club. Since relocating to Tideswell, the Carters have been back for amateur bouts and the English-born middleweight would now like to fight in Ireland as a pro.

The ambitious 21 year old has no qualms about fighting on the road, and is planning some away dates as he looks to move quickly through the ranks.

Carter told that “I’m not bothered about selling tickets for every fight. I am willing to go on the road, at the end of the day I am a fighter, fighters fight, and that’s what I’m going to do.”

“Home crowds are brilliant but I want to be out there and getting noticed.”

“I am looking forward to my first six rounder in Essex against Tey Lynn Jones just a couple of weeks after Friday.

Carter is open to a return to Ireland and is certainly someone to consider for FS, Red Corner, MHD, and Davitt. He explained that “I would love the opportunity to go and fight in Ireland, I have done it twice as an amateur.”

“I would love to do it more as a pro, even if that meant going as an opponent – as I said before I am a fighter!”
