Mick Conlan [1(1)-0] returns to the ring in Chicago next month as he begins his tour around all the major Irish hubs in America.
Fresh from headlining his massive debut card at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick’s Day, Conlan will again headline on Friday May 26th at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.
Last month Conlan would start his paid career off perfectly, with the Manny Robles-trained talent stopping Tim Ibarra in the third round at The Mecca of Boxing.
The Top Rank super bantamweight will again box over six rounds as he continues his adjustment to the pro game, where he aims to become a three-weight world champion.
The card, televised Stateside on UniMas, currently features welterweights Alex Saucedo and Mike Alvarado with more to be announced.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 8:00pm (Irish time) from Ticketmaster.com and are priced at $32, $52, and $102.
The 2015 World Championships gold medalist said that “I’m delighted to be boxing in Chicago.”
“Chicago being heavily populated with Irish, I’ve already had a huge amount of people contacting me about the fight. And for Top Rank to have me as a main event again with a fantastic undercard is great.”
“I’m looking forward to going there and putting on a great show for the fans!”
An opponent for Conlan will be named in the near future.
