Fighters are normally confident. That isn’t surprising. They work essentially their entire lives to reach the top of the mountain. The ultimate goal, of course, is to win a world title, rake in loads of money, and for those who are a bit more ambitious, become a pound-for-pound star and a Hall of Famer.

Bruce Carrington is determined to reach the sport’s pinnacle. So far, he’s on the right track. With a spotless record through 10 fights, including three knockout wins in 2023, Carrington (10-0, 6 KOs) believes his time is coming.

This Friday night, he’ll look to take another step in the right direction when he takes on Bernard Angelo Torres at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden.

Looking past Torres wouldn't be a sagacious decision. It also isn’t something that Carrington has ever done. All fighters, regardless of their record and stature, are dangerous according to Carrington. Meaning, he isn’t overlooking the fringe contender.

Still, the 26-year-old can’t afford to slip up. He has big plans for himself, including some that many would consider unfathomable. Currently, the highly touted prospect is looking around the featherweight division while scouting the competition. It’ll be a while before he gets thrown into the ring with the likes of Raymond Ford, Robeisy Ramirez, and Rafael Espinoza.

Eventually, however, the upper echelon of the division will have to cross paths with him. Conquering and stripping them of their championship status is a certainty in the mind of Carrington. That box will be checked off sooner, rather than later. But, in addition to becoming a world champion in multiple divisions, Carrington strongly believes that at some point, he’ll become the most recognizable and respected name that the sport of boxing has to offer.

“I plan on being the biggest name in boxing,” Carrington told during a recent interview. “I plan on taking over the division.”
