As junior lightweight contender Jono Carroll (16-0-1. 3 KOs) prepares for his shot at a world title tonight against IBF titleholder Tevin Farmer (28-4-1, 6 KOs), airing live on DAZN, the Irish fighter tells Sky Sports that he’s been preparing for this moment since he was a child.
“I’m a massive believer in the law of attraction and I’ve put it out there and spoke it since I was a kid and here I am now today. Everything I said I was going to do, I’ve accomplished and I’ve accomplished in a time frame that I said I was going to do.
”This is my destiny.”
Carroll, 26, says he’s seen Farmer quit before in a stoppage loss to Jose Pedraza back in 2012, and says he therefore knows that Farmer has quitting in him — he just has to pull it out. And because Carroll believes he’s much mentally tougher than Farmer, he thinks once the fight gets tough he’ll be able to stand up to the adversity better than the champion.
Farmer will certainly represent the stiffest challenge on paper that Carroll has ever faced, so let’s just see how ready he is to seize the opportunity that’s in front of him. BLH will be here with live coverage of the fight tonight!
