Featherweight fighter promises to pull off unprecedented achievement

Featherweight fighter promises to pull off unprecedented achievementMikey Williams/Top Rank
There a fight coming up next weekend.

Bruce Carrington vowed he would be the first fighter to stop Jose Enrique Vivas when they meet on June 8.

The pair fight live on ESPN+  in the US ( click here for details ), as the co-main for Xander Zayas vs. Patrick Teixeira.

A win for Carrington could propel him to a featherweight world title fight, but first he will have to get past his opponent to keep his unbeaten record intact.

Speaking from Las Vegas, Carrington said: “This is a big step up for me. I will finally be in the co-main event of a big show. It’s the best thing for my career right now, so I can let everyone know who I am. This fight will help me grow and get comfortable with this type of atmosphere. This opportunity will allow me to show I'm made for this.

“Jose Enrique Vivas is a great dance partner. He’s never been stopped. He’s a really tough guy, but I like fighting tough guys. I get to show how not tough they are when it comes to facing me.

“I will be the first person to stop him. And it’s because of the way I’ve been training, how hard I’ve been training, and what I know I’m going to bring to the table. It’s just like in my last two fights. It’s about how I have been feeling.

“I’m an old-school fighter. I go in there to hurt. I go in there to dominate in dramatic fashion. I have that mentality. And I feel that’s what separates the boys from the men. That’s what separates the champions from the greats.”
