On November 7th, Belfast man Jamie Conlan will return to the home of Irish boxing once again to headline a show called“Second Coming”.

Following the exhilarating night in Dublin on July 4th this year, the name Jamie Conlan and the National Stadium will forever be associated. The Super flyweight will be defending his WBO Intercontinental title for the second time. The fight will be broadcast exclusively live on BoxNation.

Macklin’s Gym Marbella (MGM) Promotions, who manage Jamie ‘The Mexican’ Conlan, said in a statement: “After his pulsating win on 4 July, the Irish public and BoxNation viewers will be eager to see the exciting Belfast fighter again.”

Conlan rose from the canvas twice to continue the battle with the Mexican fighter Junior Granados. He eventually outpointed his Mexican opponent with a close decision victory. Conlan (28) is unbeaten with 14 wins and eight KOs to his name.

The Belfast brawler has spoken about his upcoming contest: “I’ve fought in the National Stadium numerous times but the support that night (July 4th) from the Irish public was something special. I cannot wait to step into the ring and put on an even better performance.”

Promoter of BoxNation, Frank Warren, also had his say:“The BoxNation viewers really took a shine to Jamie Conlan in July and the atmosphere that we witnessed was up there with the best we have seen. So we are delighted to work alongside MGM Promotions again.”

Head of MGM and three time world title challenger Matthew Macklin has said that Conlan’s last fight was the most exciting encounter the famous venue on the South Circular Road has ever seen.

“It was a no brainer for Jamie Conlan to headline again, that was one of the best if not the best fight that the National Stadium has witnessed. The atmosphere was electric and we hope it will be even better this time,” said Macklin.

Conlan’s opponent for the night has yet to be announced.  

Also featuring on the bill is big hitting heavyweight Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner. The Dubliner fought on the previous Conlan led card and he made easy work of Janis Ginters, who failed to re-emerge from his corner after a first round beating. Turner is undefeated in six professional fights and has executed four KOs.

The Irish welterweight title will also be up for grabs on the night, with MGM’s Peter McDonagh and Dean Byrne set to box for the belt.

Galway man McDonagh, 37, already has two Irish championship wins under his belt and will be hoping to add another before he hangs up his gloves.

31-year-old Byrne is chasing his first title. The Dubliner used to train in Freddie Roach’s famous Wild Card gym, where he sparred against the incredible Manny Pacquiao.

Crowd favourite Declan ‘Pretty Boy’ Geraghty will be competing on the night. The Dubliner, who is signed with MGM, has a professional record of nine wins with one defeat. Other names will appear on the exciting card including Jamie Kavanagh and Michael Sweeney.

With Jamie Conlan in the ring, you are likely to witness blood and brutality in its most artistic form.

If you fancy a first-hand look at the sweet science live, then the National Stadium on 7 November is the place to be.
