Michael Conlan will have a homecoming on June 30, as Frank Warren in association with Top Rank will promote a bout of his at SSE Arena Belfast against an opponent to be named.
Conlan (6-0, 5 KO) first has a fight on May 12 in New York, facing Ibon Larrinaga (10-1, 2 KO) on the Linares-Lomachenko card, but is already excited to return to his hometown.
“What a huge honor it is for me to box back in my home city,” said Conlan via press release. “I’ve been to an awful lot of huge boxing events around the world, and there are very few that can match the atmosphere the people of Belfast can generate.
“Belfast is a city that loves boxing, and I’m very grateful that I can bring a big show to these shores that I call home. I feel I need to pay back all the fans that have been traveling to the U.S., time and time again, to see me fight. This one is for them, and I hope to bring many more fights to Belfast again in the future.”
