Then to add to this in his last amateur fight less than a year ago he fought and KO'd a guy who at the minute is ranked number 10 in the UK. I think this would be a good fight, but just a suggestion
Great fight card btw, looks like another great show!
And a great suggestion it was too
I personally think that Karl is probably the best raw potential talent in Ireland today. That's why it's important not to rush him, and move forward at a steady pace. It was one of the things that we considered carefully when I signed Karl a few months ago. He is one of those guys who if he applies himself might just go all the way
I think I do have him matched for this card, just waiting on bout agreements being returned!!
