Bernard Roe hopes that his latest win means that he can get in at least one more payday before the festivities.
The Dublin super welterweight moved to 2-0 last weekend with a second win in as many months.
Roe, who started his professional career only last month when he scored a four-round points win, went to points once more on October 17 at Liverpool’s Grand Central Hall.
He was taken the distance by game debutant Evaldas Korsakas on the inaugural ‘Thunderdome’ card, promoted by Double A Promotions, in association with the Alfie Warren Academy.
It was tough for Roe, 24, but he came through the fight unscathed after picking up a 39-38 tally on referee John Latham’s scorecard.
“Bernard was in with a tricky opponent,” his manager Stephen Vaughan said in the aftermath.
“We were only told that he was a southpaw an hour before the ring walks were due and it made for a scrappy fight, but a win is a win and it’s on to the next one.”
And with his next proposed outing set for December in the city in which he is based, training at Derry Mathews’ gym, he is hoping that all runs smoothly in the build up.
Manager Vaughan continued and said: “We will get him in another four-rounder before the end of the year, let him get another win under his belt and then we’ll begin to build his profile starting in early 2016.”by
