Carey is determined to make it third time lucky; BOXING.

COVENTRY lightweight Baz Carey has a score to settle on Thursday night.

Carey squares up to Daniel Thorpe over six rounds at the Cafe Royal in London and is confident he will beat an opponent who has held the upper hand in their previous two meetings.

Carey was left fuming when the battled to a draw in their first fight, but had no complaints when he was outpointed by the slippery Sheffield switch-hitter at the Leofric Hotel last November.

But he goes into their third meeting flushed with self belief after winning his last three fights.

Carey said: "I've watched the video of our last fight and I know I will beat him this time.

"I was a bit hesitant when I boxed him in Coventry because it was my first fight after having a nose operation and I'm going to be in his face from the opening bell this time.

"I've been working on my jab and that can win the fight for me. He throws big, wide punches and I can beat him to the punch with straight shots.

"Thorpe is the kind of opponent I should be handling if I want to win titles and that's what I intend to do."
