About


Jono Carroll, born Jonathan Beresford on April 12, 1992, has made a significant mark in the boxing world, highlighted by his challenge for the IBF junior-lightweight title in 2019. Carroll’s journey from a relatively unknown fighter to a respected name in boxing is a testament to his determination and skill.

Carroll began his professional career in Australia in 2012, securing a 2-0 record before returning to Dublin to train under Paschal “Packie” Collins at the Celtic Warrior Gym in Blanchardstown. His Irish debut came in November 2014 against Declan Geraghty at the 3Arena. On the undercard of Matthew Macklin vs. Jorge Sebastian Heiland, Carroll’s fight with Geraghty was intense, ending in the fourth round with Geraghty’s disqualification for persistent use of the head. This bout earned the title of ‘Irish Fight of the Year.’

Carroll’s career took a significant turn when he became the Prizefighter champion in December 2014. He overcame the odds to defeat Stephen Foster, Gary Buckland, and Michael Devine, capturing the lightweight title and securing a promotional deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport.

In 2015, despite initially being slated to fight on the undercard of Spike O’Sullivan vs. Chris Eubank Jr, Carroll instead fought Miguel Gonzalez on the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Tyson Fury card. He dominated the ten-round bout, winning every round for a unanimous decision victory.

On March 7, 2020, Carroll fought former world champion Scott Quigg. He dominated Quigg and secured a TKO victory in the eleventh round. However, in his next fight, Carroll faced Maxi Hughes. Despite being the favorite, Carroll was outboxed and lost via unanimous decision in a major upset.

Carroll rebounded on September 11, 2021, by fighting Andy Vences, who was ranked #7 at super featherweight by the WBA. Carroll won the fight via majority decision, with the scorecards reading 97-93, 97-93, and 95-95.
