VIDEO: Jamie Conlan v Anthony Nelson – Fight of the Year

Wow.

Jamie Conlan recovered from two knockdowns last night to stop gutsy Anthony Nelson and grab the Commonwealth super flyweight crown.

The ballsy South Shields boxer was down in the 1st and the 5th, but always came back fighting and floored ‘The Mexican’ in the 3rd and the 7th, before succumbing to a magic bodyshot from Conlan.

Rematch?

Watch the fight in all it’s visceral glory below:
