Irishman Michael Conlan continued his solid start to the professional boxing ranks with a win this weekend at Madison Square Garden, New York.

Conlan won a comfortable unanimous points decision over 27 year old Spanish opponent Ibon Larrinaga in a performance that showed more control and patience to Conlan’s game than perhaps before.

Fighting under new coach Adam Booth for the second time, it is clear that Conlan realizes he is still very much learning his trade and is not resting on his laurels.

Speaking after the fight Conlan provided this assessment of the fight:

Conlan now moves on to a homecoming fight later in the summer in his native Belfast at Windsor Park – the same card Carl Frampton is scheduled to fight on.
