Belfast's Tommy McCarthy could be putting it all on the line at the SSE Arena in Belfast on June 10.

Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn - who is promotion the show - wants McCarthy to face former World Heavyweight title challenger Mike Perez and it seems McCarthy’s manager Pat Magee might be interested.

The Cuban has been in some serious training in recent weeks and has got himself down to the cruiserweight weight limit - while McCarthy will be looking to get back on track after losing in his last outing to Matty Askin in November.
