Jamie Conlan’s visit to Belfast next month won’t be a fleeting one.
‘The Mexican’ brings a televised fight night back to his home town on November 5th and it seems the fighter won’t just bring regular cards back to a city he hasn’t fought in since 2014, but could bring World title action to the capital of Irish boxing.
Promoter Frank Warren has revealed he is working with MGM to secure a World title shot for the super flyweight and wants to stage that clash in Belfast.
“I am working with Matthew Macklin to get Jamie a world title fight in Belfast next year so he has everything to play for on November 5th,” said the English promoter.
Warren also expressed his excitement at returning to the fight mad city a place he hasn’t promoted in since 2009 and claims it is an honour to promote Paddy Barnes’s pro debut.
“Belfast is always special when it comes to boxing as it is a fight city and I’m excited to be coming back,” he added.
“Jamie Conlan is never in a dull fight so excitement is guaranteed. Paddy Barnes is something special and it will be an honour to promote his first professional outing after his illustrious amateur career – three Olympic Games is an incredible achievement.”
