Irish boxer Michael “Mick” Conlan returns to the ring against Miguel Marriaga at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Ireland on Saturday night and the event will be live streamed on ESPN+ and FITE.TV.
Conlan (16-1, 8 KOs) is coming off his first professional boxing loss. In March, Conlan would fight for the WBA world featherweight title against champion Leigh Wood, and was up on the cards, only to be knocked out in the final seconds of the 12th round in a Fight of The Year brawl.
The proud Irish fighter, didn’t dwell on the loss, but vowed to not make the same mistake again of being careless and getting caught when he was already winning.
Tonight he will have cheering Irish fans who will support his road back to title contention and he will be in tough against hard hitting Colombian, Miguel Marriaga.
Marriaga (30-5, 26 KOs) is a 35-year-old veteran of the sport who has been in the ring with Vasiliy Lomachenko, Oscar Valdez and Nicholas Walters.
Just like Conlan, Marriaga wants to climb back to title contention and he will need to pull off an upset to remain in the mix especially at the age of 35.
Also on the card are undefeated up and coming prospects, Irish welterweight sensation Paddy “Real Deal” Donovan (8-0, 6 KOs), featherweight Kurt Walker (2-0, 1 KOs), 154 lbs standout Kieran Molloy (1-0, 1 KOs).
