Conlon moves closer to becoming Lord of Flys-but wont fight Saturday

By Jonny Stapleton

Jamie Conlon has been pulled off of Saturday’s nights Jason Booth Scott Quigg card, but the disapointment is eased by the fact he is close to securing a clash that will pave the way to a coveted British title fight.

The older brother of Olympic qualifier Michael Conlon is close to securing a clash with recently deposed former British Champion Paul Edwards.

The Belfast fighter hopes to fight Edwards, who lost his title to veteran and name sake Chris Edwards in June, in Liverpool on November 19.

A win over the younger of the two Edwards would certainly give the John Breen trained nice guy a chance to become lord of the domestic flyweights.

Frank Maloney will most likely put Conlon in with the winner of Chris Edwards and Shinny Bayaar’s British title fight.

“I won’t be fighting on Saturday. I have been moved to the bill in Liverpool on the 19th November. I hope to have a confirmed fight with Paul Edwards on that show,” Conlon explained.
