Top Pro Gif Ad
Frank Warren has confirmed that the long-rumoured Belfast Boxnation show will take place on Saturday November 5th at the Titanic Exhibition Centre.

The card will be headlined by Commonwealth super flyweight champion Jamie Conlan against an opponent to-be-confirmed in the near future. Many believe that the Mexican will take on Anthony Nelson in a repeat of their knockdown-filled war in April.

No official undercard announcements have been made by Warren, although Con Sheehan has already been confirmed to be on the bill.

It is assumed that fighters such as the Upton Brothers, Ciaran McVarnock, Steven Ward, Declan Geraghty, Sean Turner, Gary Sweeney, Tyrone McKenna, Joe Fitzpatrick, James Tennyson, James Fryers, and Lewis Crocker are all contenders to appear.

Ticket information for the card will be announced shortly.
