Sean Duffy ready to go into battle with Michael Conlan again

Sean Duffy [1(1)-0] is ready to go to war with Michael Conlan again.

The new to the pro scene figther fought on big amateur bills together over the years and the Keady fighter is looking forward to sharing a card with the Top Rank star again.

It’s not just any card the pair share alongside a number of Irish fighters. The lightweight has been handed a slot on the huge Féile an Phobail card on August 3rd.

It’s a massive opportunity for a fighter with just one pro win to his name to impress and one he is looking forward to talking.

“I’m very pleased to be fighting on such a big bill. Me and Michael Conlan have been going to competitions through the years together for a long time, so I’m looking forward to sharing a bill with him again,” explained Duffy.

“Training has been good in the build up to this fight and I’ve been getting some good sparring in with Callum Bradley who is also on the bill, plus with Paul Hyland before his last fight.”

Duffy started pro life with a knockout win over Antonio Horvatic at the Ulster Hall in May and is hoping to build on that performance in front of the ESPN+ and BT SPorts cameras. 

“I had a knockout win on my debut and I’ve always been known as a puncher so I expected nothing less. My opponent was durable and trying his best to survive but you could see from the early stages of the first round that he didn’t want to be there.

“I’m now looking to build on that performance, and everything has been brilliant in the weeks leading up to the fight so I’m ready to go.”

Duffy is part of a massive card at Falls Park, that is main evented by Michael Conlan facing the toughest test of his career so far when he takes on Diego Alberto Ruiz.

A huge bill also includes Luke Keeler vs. Luis Arias, Alfredo Meli vs. Araik Marutjan, Paddy Gallagher vs. Chris Jenkins for the British & Commonwealth welterweight titles, Padraig McCrory vs. Steve Collins Jr for the Celtic super-middleweight title, Sean McComb vs. Renald Garrido, Olympic hero Paddy Barnes, Dennis McCann, Callum Bradley and Dee Sullivan.
