Geraghty wants to say goodbye to journey men with a win Saturday

Declan Geraghty can see titles on the horizon.

The slick former amateur standout believes he will challenge for his first strap within two fights.

First up is the notoriously dirty Oszkar Fiko in Spain on Saturday then a bout on a big Boxnation card and, if he comes away with two wins, the two-weight amateur Irish champ will fight for pro honours.

A keen-to-be-pushed-on Geraghty told Irish-boxing.com

“I am glad to get back fighting and I should have a title fight within my next two fights. I am looking forward to that and sticking to the plan that my team have laid out.”

“I’ve asked the team to push me on. I don’t want any more journeymen. I want good 50/50 fights and I think it will happen very soon for me.I’m willing to fight anyone who they put in front of me.”

Geraghty is well aware of the reputation his Hungarian opponent has, but isn’t too bothered and is hopeful of stopping Fiko on what is a busy night for Irish-boxing on Saturday.

“The lad boxed Jamie Kavanagh on the Dublin show, he’s a very dirty fighter and went seven or eight rounds with Jamie. I am doing a four rounder and think l could get him out within them four rounds. I only did a short camp because I wasn’t meant to be on this but l wanted to get a little fight in before my next clash.”
