“Look at Tommy McCarthy,” said O’Brien when speaking to Irish-boxing.com. “He went out to Italy and he won, since then he’s catapulted, he fought on Eddie Hearn’s Fight Camp, has won titles and got a contract, so a win in this fight is massive for me,” he adds before saying he is hoping to impress his way onto Matchroom’s books.
“That would be the plan, as I said look at Tommy and what happened when he got the win there. Tommy got that contact, got a European title fight, and then he got Chris Billam Smith fight. It’s not just him, I’ve seen your man Reece Bellotti, he went over there last year he got a win, and your man Morrissey- and off the back of that he got [Chris] Eubank. So a win out here for me is massive!”
