Jono Carroll Believes He Has The Edge Over Declan Geraghty

World-ranked super-featherweight Jono Carroll is sure he holds significant edges over Declan Geraghty both physically and mentally ahead of their rematch.
 
After winning a controversial 2012 bout with ‘Pretty Boy’ via disqualification, Carroll (15-0-KO2) believes he’s improved exponentially since and will expose what he perceives to be fragility in his opponent.

Carroll said: “It’s going to be a man against a boy in there strength-wise both physically and mentally.
 
“Mentally, he’s a child and he’s not going to want what I give him. I’m not saying I’ll go steaming forward because I don’t need to. I can beat him in any way. Whatever he does best, I’ll take it away from him.
 
“I beat him in my third fight and I’ve won all 15 now with improvement every time. If I’m able to beat him after two previous professional fights then I’m going to be even better now.
 
“I truly believe I’m a better technical boxer and a better actual ‘fighter’ too. Every part of my game is better than his.
 
“He says he’s a better boxer than me. He was a decent amateur and probably should’ve stayed amateur but I find it funny he thinks he’s the better boxer. He’s absolutely delusional.”
 
A colossal night of boxing sees Michael Conlan headline with his long-awaited return to Belfast with a stacked undercard featuring a rescheduled showdown between Tyrone McKenna and Phil Sutcliffe Jr.
 
In addition, Tyrone McCullagh faces Joe Ham and Johny Coyle takes on Lewis Benson with all four fighters boasting flawless records while Paddy Gallagher clashes with world title challenger Gary Corcoran.

This has all the ingredients to be an absolute borefest. That means it will actually be fantastic.
