Thrillmeister Jamie Conlan is ready to entertain in World title fights.
Conlan [16(10)-0] has a well-deserved reputation as a rising star in the super-flyweight division, due to his undefeated record and strong KO ratio. He has an eye-catching and offensive boxing style, which has spawned his nickname, ‘The Mexican”.
The Belfast fighter signed a promotional agreement with Frank Warren in March, and is looking to move his career onto the next level as he hunts down a World title.
‘The Mexican’, who next fights in Cardiff on July 16th, is looking to grab a belt in a division that has seen the departure of British rival Paul Butler to bantamweight, and he is rumoured to be followed by Japanese WBO World champion Nagoya Inoue.
Last time out all-action Conlan beat South Sheilds’s Anthony Nelson to claim the Commonwealth Super-Flyweight crown in an early Fight of the Year contender. Braveheart Conlan looked to be struggling but survived to land the decisive fight-ending body-blow in heroic fashion in the eight round.
“I’m buzzing to be added to the talent-stacked Cardiff Ice Arena show and can’t wait to get back out there. I’ve never boxed in Wales even as an amateur so its another box ticked off. I’ll be looking to correct the mistakes from the Nelson fight and rack up another win in style.”
“I believe Frank Warren is the best promoter out there and will get me where I want to be and that’s a world champion. I’m pushing onto world level now and Frank’s expertise is second to none so I know that I’m in great hands. I’m getting out regularly and that’s the best way to progress as a fighter.”
