Packed Dublin show topped by Jamie Conlan this weekend

Frank Warren and MGM Promotions present an excellent evening of boxing from the National Stadium in Dublin, topped by Super Flyweight sensation Jamie Conlan.

Conlan is set to defend his WBO Intercontinental against tough Mexican Junior Granados. Granados comes to Dublin full of ambition however Conlan will be looking to make a statement after linking up with top trainer Danny Vaughan in Marbella. The pair seem to have gelled excellently as Jamie looks to launch his own charge at a world title in the coming months. A world title fight or a domestic showdown with Paul Butler seem very realistic for Conlan in and under the management of the MGM Marbella the sky is the limit for ‘the Mexican’.

The star-studded card features Tommy Langford who takes a step up in class as he challenges for the WBO intercontinental Middleweight title with world title ambitions of his own in the coming 18 months.

Dublin man Anthony Fitzgerald returns as he takes on Kieran Gray over eight rounds. Highly rated Bantamweight Ryan Burnett takes on the tough Csaba Kovacs over eight rounds. Steve Collins Jnr, Sean Turner, Declan Geraghty and Michael Rooney also feature on a card which is made up by Stephen Ormond and Patrick Hyland, both of whom have operated a world level.

The show will be broadcast live and exclusively on BoxNation this Saturday evening.
