Michael Conlan Pumped To Fight on Same Card as Carl Frampton

Former world amateur champion Michael Conlan is beaming with pride after being named among a trio of Belfast fighters added to the Josh Warrington vs. Carl Frampton card on December 22.
 
‘The Conlan Revolution’ heads for Manchester Arena along with former amateur team-mates Paddy Barnes and Steven Ward on the night Frampton aims to become a three-time world champion. With masses of Belfast boxing fans expected to cross the water, Conlan credits ‘The Jackal’ for leading the way.

Conlan said: “It’s just great and it’s the first time I’ll have been on a professional card with Paddy, Steven or Frampton. It means a lot to me.
 
“Belfast is a city with great fighters kids can really up to and who inspire the next generations. That’s what it’s all about. It shows no matter who you are and where you’re from in this city – people will support you.
 
“It’s a tight-knit community and it’s fantastic that we can all ‘up sticks’ and bring a crowd like the one I believe will turn up in Manchester so close to Christmas.
 
“Carl is a friend of mine and we have a good relationship. It’s great to have that bond with someone who’s leading the way in my division. I look up to him and to be fighting on his undercard is great.
 
“’The Conlan Revolution’ isn’t something I came up with myself but I like it. It seems to be becoming global because the fans will travel everywhere. They’ve just been all the way to Las Vegas, where I was surprised to have such great support so it’s good they won’t have so far to travel this time.
 
“I was back in Belfast for a homecoming fight last summer and it was a great atmosphere. Manchester will be just the same.”
 
While Conlan will be looking to improve to 10-0 before Christmas, Barnes will be looking to bounce back from a WBC world flyweight title defeat and Celtic light-heavyweight king Steven Ward bids to carry real momentum into 2019.
 
In addition, the Belfast quartet’s MTK Global team-mates Jack Massey, Sam Maxwell and Alex Dickinson are in action on the card.
