After spending 2018 on the sidelines with injury, Glasgow-based Scottish star Nico Carrillo returned to the ring in emphatic style in 2019.

Notching up four impressive victories over tough international opponents since his return in March, the young Scotsman looks destined for a big future.

Here’s five possible match-ups for Nico Carrillo in 2020:

Ramesh Habib

After a successful debut against Sweden’s Kenny Hong at Lion Fight 59 in Gothenburg, the Scotsman has the Lion Fight Super-Lightweight champion in his sights.

The Australian Ramesh Habib beat Ireland’s Sean Clancy for the vacant World title earlier this year and a match-up against Carrillo would be a huge bout for the first title defence.

Mo Abdurahman

It’s no secret that the new UK #1 Mo Abdurahman is in every Super-Lightweight fighters cross-hairs.

Holding the #1 spot in the UK holds as much prestige as any domestic title and a bout against the current #1 Abdurahman is high on any ranked fighters’ priorities.

Luke Hill

Nico and Luke Hill have been on a collision course for a long time now. Luke, who is currently the 63.5kg #5, is ranked just above Nico at #6.

A potential win against the Lumpini Crawley fighter would be an ideal way to continue his climb up the domestic rankings.

Carlton Lieu

Another domestic bout which would see a potential climb in the rankings. Current UK #3 Carlton Lieu is a name that’s been mentioned by many people as a possible match-up for the Scottish star in 2020.

Sean Cláncy

The Irishman Sean Cláncy has had a sensational year of his own, winning the WBC International title, and then the WBC World title in Ireland.

A fight against one of Ireland’s top Super-Lightweights would be a intriguing contest and one that could potentially propel Nico onto the World stage.
