An extra carrot has been dangled in front of Ciaran McVarnock ahead of his seventh pro fight.
McVarnock is confident a decent performance against Ruslans Berdimuradovs, a foe with a winning record, in Bolton tomorrow night will play a part in persuading Frank Warren to bring Boxnation to Belfast.
The English promoter is said to be exploring a home coming night for Commonwealth champion Jamie Conlan, which would include an outing for British featherweight title challenger James Tennyson and considering McVarnock is part of the Warren stable too he knows if he impresses it could play a part in a Boxnation Belfast visit.
‘Bunty’ claims the idea of being able to fight in his home town for the second time has proved motivation ahead of his clash with
“Yea that definitly motivates me,” he told Irish-boxing.com.
“It would be great if Warren goes to Belfast. I know he won’t be let down. He would get a big crowd that’s for sure .
“Everyone in Belfast loves their boxing and they all get behind every fighter . For a small wee place we have the biggest support . Personally I would love to fight back home again it would lift me that little bit more in training.
“I can see it happening very soon to be honest.”
Although he is hoping for a Belfast return this Summer the undefeated 24 year old isn’t keen to look to far ahead.
Indeed, he thinks the one fight at a time mantra is the way to be more successful in the long run.
“I just take each fight at a time,” he continues.
“I don’t want to think too far ahead. I’m still an apprentice and I’m still learning my trade . I do believe I can go far. I wouldn’t stay in this sport and put myself through all this, move away from home just to be an average boxer . I want to go all the way and ill just keep my feet planted on the ground and take fight by fight.”
