Tommy McCarthy will take to the ring tonight looking to claim his second win in seven days.

The Belfast cruiserweight won last weekend in England he will face Ladislav Reznicek in Blackpool tonight looking to make it eight wins out of eight as a professional.

And McCarthy says he wants to end 2015 on a high - but he says he has time on his side before he fights for a major title.

“There is no rush. I just turned 25 last month, so I’ve got time on my side and, as a cruiserweight, 25 is still very young.

“I only turned professional last year as well, so there’s no mad rush, but I want to be world champion at least by the time I’m 30, but preferably before it.

“So to come away with two wins is a great way to cap it off and then we can push on next year.”

And there was good news for Belfast flyweight Luke Wilton this week as the British Boxing Board of Control have put him in a final eliminator for the British title against Charlie Edwards.

With the winner facing either Andrew Selby or Iain Butcher for the belt.
