Conlan (9-0, 6 KOs) pushed the pace against the defensive-minded Cipolletta (14-7-2, 4 KOs), who was making his American debut. Cipolletta, who was content to back up for much of the fight, succumbed from Conlan's vicious body attach.

Conlan is scheduled to close out his 2018 campaign on Dec. 22 in Manchester, England.
