to carry the fight to one's opponent

Hello, once again I found this in "the Exploits of Engelbrecht", a surrealist British text written by Maurice Richardson in the 40s/50s.
It is about an all-in wrestling match opposing a Giant Kraken and Engelbrecht, a dwarf boxer.
"Engelbrecht is wearing a frogman's suit. Obviously he intends to carry the fight to his opponent."
Is it just a stylish/more complicated way of saying that he is ready to fight ?
