Originally because of the fight for the postponed Lopez Kambosos card in June, the two found each other tonight in Florida on the latest trill freak show. However, while desperate eyes focused on the unsavory headliner, Carroll and Vences fought a competition that simmered before it ignited in the Irish’s favor in the final rounds.

if (typeof __ez_fad_position! = ‘Undefined’) {__ ez_fad_position (‘div-gpt-ad-irish_boxing_com-box-4-0’)}; After his shocking loss to Maxi Hughes last year, Carroll was back on the road to success in March, stopping Armenian Romic Airapetean in four rounds in Malaga. Vences was also on a comeback path after losing his last fight – and his place in the top ranking stable – last July and dropping a split decision on the undreamt-of Luis Alberto Lopez.

That was his second of three defeats, but Vences was still the « home » fighter here – albeit a minor underdog with the bookmakers. However, Carroll, as always, won hearts in build-up and combat before gaining a victory that will catapult him to even bigger match-ups.

Southpaw Carroll started embarrassed as the longer Vences probed with straight shots. In the course of the opening round it was a solid start from the Dubliner aiming for the body.

In the second, Carroll stepped up the action, raided well and landed the larger number of scoring shots.if (typeof __ez_fad_position! = ‘Undefined ‘) {__ ez_fad_position (‘ div-gpt-ad-irish_boxing_com-banner-1-0 ‘)};

Carroll continued the good job on the third, holding Vences in between when he came in while the Californian was having trouble Finding a rhythm.

It was rougher on lap four as Vence’s body came together early before Carroll landed a clean shot up halfway.

Carroll’s breakouts worked well early on the fifth, though Vences responded with more ragged body shots.

Round six started brilliantly for Carroll, who landed a series of fusses before Vences worked his way back into the fight to give the judges more work in a fight that was in every way could be rated e.

The intensity and trade went up a notch in the seventh year, Carroll shaded things up close, but Vences worked well in the middle range.if (typeof __ez_fad_position! = ‘undefined’) {__ ez_fad_position (‘div -gpt-ad-irish_boxing_com-large- Ranking list-2-0 ‘)};

Vences landed heavy shots in eighth, reddened « King Kong »‘ s face and pushed him back onto the ropes. Carroll responded by calling his husband, but he felt he needed a strong degree – and boy did he get one.

A long medical exam of Carroll’s eye forced a delay before the ninth. When things finally got going again it was a direct war, and Carroll – who later revealed he couldn’t see due to damage above his eye – battled his way to the top as the output of Vences sank The tenth, like much of the fight, was razor-sharp again and we went to the cards nervously.

A majority of the judges sided with Carroll, with a pair of 97-93s overriding a drawn 95-95 card To bring « King Kong » back into the World Championship title frame.

With the narrow but well-deserved win, Carroll improves to 20 (5) -2 (0) -1, while a very disappointed Vences to 23 (12) -3 (0) -1 falls.

With the mandatory position in the back pocket, Carroll stands in line for the winner of the upcoming defense of Master Roger Gutierrez against Chris Colbert, which will take place on a date to be confirmed.
