Conlan not easing back gently against Marriaga

Conlan not easing back gently against Marriaga

5 months following remaining knocked out in the closing spherical of a war against Leigh Wood, Ireland’s Michael Conlan returns from Colombian puncher Miguel Marriaga

FIGHTER-TURNED-PROMOTER Jamie Conlan places on a clearly show at Belfast’s SSE Arena that seems to be effectively-matched from major to bottom. Not only that, Jamie has the included force of seeing his brother Michael Conlan stage back again into the ring for the 1st time since currently being knocked out of it by Leigh Wood in March.

Conlan, 16-1 (8), will consider on gnarled Colombian veteran Miguel Marriaga, 30-5 (26), about 10 rounds on Saturday night (August 6) being aware of another slip-up could end his title ambitions. Marriaga has undoubtedly noticed much better days at 35, but he only loses to quality fighters. The lone man to quit him was Vasiliy Lomachenko, in 7 rounds in 2017. Fighters unable to change the Colombian incorporate Oscar Valdez, Nicholas Walters, Joet Gonzalez and Eduardo Ramirez.

But Marriaga is no stranger to the canvas, obtaining been dropped seven times as a pro. Conlan can whack, as evidenced by the volume of issues Wood was in ahead of his Rocky-esque late comeback in Nottingham. Conlan insists there’s no hangover from that defeat and he’ll be keen to test Marriaga’s ambition early in the bout. The choose is for Conlan to get a lopsided selection.

The relaxation of the card is sound. Belfast “Hammer” Padraig McCrory steps up against Mexican gatekeeper Marco Antonio Periban, 26-5-1 (17). The visitor has been stopped by James DeGale and Joshua Buatsi and will do perfectly to stay away from the ideal hand of McCrory, 13- (7). Area your bets on the residence fighter inside of the length.

Tougher to call is the 10-round welterweight scrap in between Tyrone McKenna, 22-3-1 (6), and Welshman Chris Jenkins, 23-5-3 (8). Soon after beating Julius Indongo in excess of eight rounds in February, the 33-year-old started out to search his age when he was blasted out in 4 by Florian Marku in April. McKenna is also seeking to bounce again after having a 6-spherical pasting at the hands of Regis Prograis in March. We hope McKenna to prevail on details.

Limerick welterweight southpaw Paddy Donovan, 8- (6), must be much too very good for Redcar’s Tom Hill, 10-2 (2), and there’s a tidily matched bout for the vacant Celtic featherweight strap amongst Belfast rivals Ruadhan Farrell, 3- (2), and Colm Murphy, 4- (1).

The clearly show is staying broadcast by FITE Tv set.
