Michael Conlan’s Pro Career Gathers Pace With Comfortable Victory In New York

Michael Conlan’s professional career continues to go from strength to strength, with another victory in the bag on Saturday night.

The 26-year-old, fighting on the undercard of Vasyl Lomachenko’s title win at Madison Square Garden, won by unanimous decision against Spaniard Ibon Larringa with the fight itself having gone the full eight rounds.

Despite the lack of a knockout, Conlan rarely looked in danger of ceding the victory, getting on the front foot early on and pretty much staying there for the duration.

To that end, the score of 80-72 awarded by all three judges fully reflected the grip which Conlan held on the bout.

The Olympic bronze medallist now has seven professional wins to his name – five of which came via KO – and moves on to face Adeilson Dos Santos in June, in what will be his third bout this year. That should provide a sterner test for Conlan’s unbeaten record, but he can draw on the strength of the home crowed with the fight due to take place in Belfast’s SSE Arena.
