Tommy McCarthy reckons winning the EBU European Heavyweight Title against Bilal Laggoune at SSE Arena in Wembley this Saturday, October 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office and DAZN in all of its nine markets, including the US, will put him in line for a world title dream shot

The Belfast man (16-2, 8 KOs) edged Italy’s Fabio Turchi last October to clinch the WBC International Cruiserweight title away and believes his European title against Laggoune came at the right time

“I’ve been training for a long time and had a great camp,” said McCarthy “We had good notice for this fight I feel like it’s right for me Win that belt m ‘Will Open Even More Doors The WBC title has opened doors; this will put me in the rankings with all governing bodies Anyone who came before me and won the EBU title usually fought for a world title after I look at this as a world title eliminator

« This will probably be the biggest show of the year It’s live on pay-per-view and topped by two big names in Oleksandr Uyk and Derek Chisora ​​For me the plan is to shine on this show, all eyes will be on me It will strengthen my profile and I could become a household name in boxing It will catapult me ​​to stardom « 

McCarthy’s career took a hard hit in March 2019 when he was stopped in four rounds by Great Britain’s Walworth Cruiserweight champion Richard Riakporhe at East of England Arena in Peterborough, but the player 29-year-old thinks the loss was to make him a fighter

“Even when I was at the bottom of the page, I always knew it would turn out well because I had the talent,” said McCarthy “I had a terrible loss, an embarrassing loss, and I had to get up from my lowest level ever After I sat down and did some soul-searching, I called Mark, my manager, and said, ‘Look, this is never going to happen again, so let’s fight ASAP’

« It doesn’t sound surreal to me or anything because I always believed it would end like this I believe everything happens for a reason Child I wanted to become Ireland’s first black world champion My main lifelong goal is to become world champion If history comes with that, it just makes it sweeter « 

McCarthy vs. Laggoune is part of a massive night of action topped by heavyweight clash of Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) with Derek Chisora ​​(32-9, 23 KOs), Lee Selby (28-2, 9 KOs) and George Kambosos Jr (18-0, 10 KOs) meet in a Final Eliminator for the IBF Lightweight World Title, heavyweight fan favorite Dave Allen (18-5-2, 15 KOs) comes back against American artist KO Christopher Lovejoy (19-0, 19 KOs), Savannah Marshall of Hartlepool (8-0, 6 KOs) faces Hannah Rankin of Glasgow (9-4, 2 KOs) for the world title vacant WBO middleweight, Kash Farooq (13-1, 6 KOs) makes his game room debut against Martin Tecuapetla (15-2-4, 10 KOs) and Amy Timlin (4-0) takes on Carly Skelly (3 -0) for the vacant Commonwealth Roosters title
