Craig McCarthy turned pro in October 2017, with an impressive win over Curtis Gargano.

Just month a later the Waterford native picked up yet another win against Michael Ciach at The City West Hotel.

McCarthy headlined in his hometown of Waterford on a historic show promoted by Neil Power. The super-middleweight got another win, this time over 6 rounds, however he did break his jaw.

McCarthy signed with Assassins in May 2018, and will feature on July 7th on a show promoted by Assassin Boxing.
