Up and coming Irish boxer Thomas “The Kid” O’Toole etched another win to his fledgling professional career Saturday with a points victory win over American Larry Pryor in Dedham, Massachusetts — a win he hopes will get him on the Katie Taylor Amanda Serrano undercard on April 30.

The Connemara light heavyweight took his unbeaten record to 3-0 with a shut-out win on a St. Valentine’s Day Massacre card at Moseley’s On the Charles.

O’Toole, 24, went the 6-round distance with Pryor registering a 60-54, 60-54, 60-54 points win.

It was the first time O’Toole has gone the distance since turning professional having scored two first-round knockouts in his previous fights. The southpaw scored a highlight-reel knockout of Texan Mark Malone on the Jason Quigley-Demetrius Andrade undercard in New Hampshire in November and took out Francisco Ariri Neto in September.

“Valuable rounds gained in a whitewash win,” O’Toole wrote on Instagram after the bout.

“All 6 rounds against a very experienced and dangerous opponent! Ready for the next opportunity.”

The win could now set O’Toole up for a clash on the Katie Taylor Amanda Serrano undercard on April 30 — given that Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn publicly said he was impressed by O’Toole’s November win.

O’Toole shared a recent interview with Hearn to his Instagram story discussing the prospect and captioned it: “Eddie Hearn. Let’s make it happen.”

He is not the only Irish boxer trying to get on the megafight undercard.

Olympian Emmet Brennan, who is about to relocate to New York, is eager to make his professional debut at Madison Square Garden and has been hitting social media to get the attention of Matchroom.
