Declan Geraghty is chomping at the bit and ready to be let of the leash.
The Dublin talent wants the journey man part of his boxing journey to be over and is ready for big fights.
The two weight Irish Senior Amateur champion tasted derby action in his Irish Fight of the Year clash with Jono Carroll in 2014 and despite losing by DQ wants meaningful fights again.
The fighter, who will fight live on Boxnation on a World title card on June 4 just weeks after his knock out win over Oskar Fiko, claims offers have been made to Belfast fighters around his weight, only for them to be rebuffed.
Geraghty understands he is not quite in the position to call fighters out nor has he the reward in the form of a title that makes him worth the risk, but he will start to make steps up the ladder soon.
“I’ve said it 100 times I wil fight anyone. I’m here to see how far l can go l don’t wanna wait round. In saying that I have to believe in my manager and team and that they will get the right fights for me, but they will be pushing me on this year and that’s want l want to do,” Geraghty told Irish-boxing.com.
That craved title shot or step up may not happen on June 4, but the MGM fighter believes it’s just around the corner.
” Regarding the June the 4th il leave it up to the team who I face, but we’re planning a big fight for me soon. We have offered lots of boxers a fight but they seam to turn it down. I understand where there coming from because I’ve no title just yet, but MGM are doing a great job for me and we will push on this year. The real positive about this fight that it is so soon after my last one and it is on BoxNation. l want to stay in the gym this Summer and keep fighting.”
