JONO Carroll insists he is ready to put everything on the line in pursuit of victory against Scott Quigg.

The Irishman, who has won 17 of his 19 fights with one loss and one draw on his record, sees Bury's former world champion as his ticket to another shot at world honours.

‘King Kong’ came up short in clash against IBF super-featherweight champion Tevin Farmer in Philadelphia in March, lasting the 12-round distance before losing out on points.

The 27-year-old had hoped to get his hands on Quigg in Saudi Arabia in December only for the Bury favourite's issue with his arm to return meaning their slot on the card of the Anthony Joshua-Andy Ruiz Jnr rematch was scrapped.

There has been no let up from the Dubliner though who is in no doubts about the final outcome.

“I haven’t necessarily learned anything extra about Scott Quigg since we were first due to fight, but I have learned more about myself – how much I want this life and what I’m willing to give up in order to accomplish my dreams and goals,” said Carroll.

“I understand I need to be ready all the time and so does my partner, so I was training the day before Christmas and then I jumped on a plane out to America to help Tevin Farmer prepare for his fight the day after Christmas.

“I love Christmas and I just bought my first house in Spain, so it was quite special to wake up in my own home on Christmas morning and appreciate what's around me.

“Now it’s time for the next step. I know my worth as a person and as a boxer.

"I won’t let Quigg beat me no matter what type of fight it has to be. I’m good at adapting so I will see what he’s good at and then take that away from him.”
