Unbeaten Ged Carroll graduates to take on former Southern Area champion Jeff Ofori when #MTKFightNight heads to the Eventim Olympia in Liverpool on November 15.
Unbeaten Carroll (11-0) takes on Ofori (9-1, 3 KOs) over eight rounds live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and also live on iFL TV, and he’s looking forward to the test.
Carroll said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be back out on November 15. I’m really looking forward to it and it’s my first time fighting since July.
“It’s a really good step up for me. I don’t know much about my opponent but I know he’s a good lad who is a former Southern Area champion. I’m really looking forward to the step up and I’m sure he’ll bring his A-game, so I’ll have to be on my A-game.
“He’s just done a 10 rounder so he’ll be fit and ready. This is my first eight rounder and I feel that you’ll see the best out of me and I’m really looking forward to it.
“It’s live on ESPN+ in America and iFL TV around the world, and I was lucky enough to be live on ESPN+ last time out as well so it’s all good exposure for me and I’m sure on the night I’ll put a good solid performance in.”
Ofori conceded his Southern Area strap to Alfie Price last September at the York Hall. Price was a standout amateur winning seven national titles and a European bronze medal.
A packed bill in Liverpool next week features Rocky Fielding’s much-anticipated return against Abdallah Paziwapazi, Martin Murray taking on Sladan Janjanin, while Terry Flanagan, Tasha Jonas, Blane Hyland, John Quigley, Sean Turner, James Heneghan and Mike Hedges are in action too.
