Featherweight fighter Michael Conlan (11-0, 6 KOs) has indicated that he won't be chasing down a rematch with Vladimir Nikitin.

Nikitin won a controversial decision over Conlan in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

A rematch was set, in the pros, at Falls Park in his native Belfast on the 3rd of August. Nikitin withdrew after suffering a bad tear to his bicep.

Although Conlan wants revenge, he is not planning to chase down the second fight.

After Nikitin fell out, he was replaced Diego Alberto Ruiz (21-2).

"I can move on with my career," Conlan told BBC Radio Ulster's Summer Club.

"That was probably a step back for me in terms of my progression. Everyone already knows I'm levels ahead of him as a professional. Yes, the storyline was significant enough to do the Falls Park fight and get revenge, but it's no problem, I'm not going to chase it. I know I beat him but just didn't get the decision.

"[Ruiz] is going to come in with a lot of confidence. But it doesn't matter, with the way I've been in training, I know what I need to do. I feel as though I have a bulletproof mindset so I'm really happy with where I am - right now, I feel like I could beat any world champion."
