The charismatic Celtic Warrior Gym puncher is now ready to sell Dublin to Eddie Hearn and Matchroom.

The undefeated Prizefighter winner has aspirations of fighting in his home town and topping big Dublin bills and with suggestions the Sky Camera’s are Belfast bound the Matchroom switch hitter see’s an opportunity to persuade them to make Dublin a city they regularly visit.

The Pascal Collins trained 24 year old has had some high profile wins and Prizefighter victory makes him somewhat of a name outside Ireland, but he feels a few big performances over the next few months could play a part in Sky, Matchroom and Hearn being persuaded to come to Dublin.

“Apparently and hopefully I am out in late June or early July and then in Belfast in September. None of that is confirmed yet, but that is what I am hoping and I really hope there is a show in Belfast it would be great to have Matchroom and Sky back over here,” Carroll told Irish-boxing.com.

“If Matchroom come to Ireland they will be looking for stars and it’s my job now to prove I can be a star of the stable. I will sell tickets for a Belfast show and I will put on a show if I get to fight on that show, but ultimately I want to fight in Dublin,” he continued.

“I haven’t let anyone down yet, I have done whats been asked, impressed in all my fights and if I can keep doing that I can help persuade Matchroom to come to Dublin.

“We have talent here to hold cards and I want to be topping those bills.”
