Mick Conlan [2(2)-0] is in Brisbane, Australia, at the moment ahead of his third professional fight.

The Belfast super bantam faces Queensland champion Jarrett Owen [5(2)-4(3)-3] over six on the Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn world title undercard at SunCorp Stadium in one of the chief support bouts.

The fight takes place at around 3am our time (Saturday night/Sunday morning) like most American-hosted fights.

To promote the fights, Conlan was quizzed on his knowledge of Aussie slang by Top Rank commentator Crystina Poncher, with some hilarious results.

With a lot of crossover between Irish and Aussie dialects, Conlan was quite good at the challenge – although he did have one stumble.
