Irish boxer Michael Conlan extended his undefeated professional boxing record tonight in Brisbane, Australia.
Michael Conlan got off to a comfortable start in round one, establishing good distance and out working his opponent for the most part.
As the second round progressed the Irishman began to slowly but surely cut down the ring of Owen, landing a nice left hand to the body towards the end of the round.
Conlan started to double up on his hooks on Jarrett Owen in round three. The spring in the Australian boxer’s legs looked to be draining as he seemed to go into survival mode.
The body punches were really hurting Owen in round three and ultimately the left hook to the body stopped the fight in third.
Here’s how it happened:
Following the fight Conlan said:
“I think we’re looking at the 22nd of September as the next date. Every fight is a performance is a little by little, all the way to the top.”

A fight between the two Olympians is already building. What a scrap it could be one day.
