Top Rank prospect Carrington wants 'all the smoke' after his thumping featherweight KO

PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA: Bruce Carrington wants "all the smoke in the featherweight division" after he scored one of the month's best knockouts with his second-round win over Jason Sanchez at the Charles F. Dodge City Center just north of Miami.

Carrington staggered Sanchez with a left hook, measured the distance between them with pawing jabs as Sanchez attempted to evade further power shots, but dropped him with a nasty straight right hand to finish the job and advance his pro boxing record to 10 wins (6 KOs).

"If I haven't yet" put the featherweight division on notice, "I definitely think i have now" Carrington told ProBox TV backstage.

The 26-year-old said: "My power has always been there, and my form has always been there. I'm just very selective with it. When it's time to turn on the power, it's time to turn on the power."

He added that 2024 is "definitely" going to be his year "100%," Carrington said.

The 126-pound division is home to world champions like Rafael Espinoza (WBO), Luis Alberto Lopez (IBF), Rey Vargas (WBC), and Brandon Figueroa (WBC interim).

For Carrington, it will not be long before he is challenging one of those for a belt.

"It will be really big for me and I should see myself being very, very close to world title contention towards the end of 2024."

Finishing, he said: "I want all of that smoke."
