New PPV date for Jono Carroll

Jono Carroll [8(1)-0] has swapped pay-per-view dates and will now fight this weekend in Duesseldorf, Germany, on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s heavyweight World title challenge against Wladimir Klitschko at the ESPRIT Arena.

Last week it was announced that the Dubin super featherweight would be appearing on the Joshua-Whyte/Eubank-O’Sullivan ‘Bad Intentions’ Sky PPV in London on December 12th at the O2 Arena.

However, on such a card, there was little chance that the Finglas southpaw would be high up on the bill which is stacked with English fighters and a televised appearance was unlikely.

Thankfully, the move to the German card on Saturday has now guaranteed the Celtic Warriors fighter a television slot, and the charismatic Carroll will be looking to impress an international audience.

The Prizefighter winner has been out of action since his win in July over Baz Brown and will be looking to put in a good performance in Duesseldorf, and perhaps secure a slot on another PPV show – Frampton v Quigg on February 27th.

The show at the 55,000-capacity arena is headlined by former Irish champion Fury who seeks to upset the odds against long-reigning Ukrainian heavyweight king Klitschko.
