Conlan awaits home field advantage Saturday

Michael Conlan will be looking to feed off the incredible environment created inside the stunning Falls Park to his full advantage when he challenges Diego Alberto Ruiz on tomorrow’s massive #MTKFightNight at Feile an Phobail.

Conlan (11-0, 6 KOs) faces Ruiz (21-2, 10 KOs) in the presence of a sold-out crowd in Belfast, live on BT Sport in association with Queensberry Promotions in the United Kingdom and live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank  Boxing in the United States.

There will be close to 10,000 eager fans at the venue for Saturday’s huge event, and Conlan is ready to feed off that energy and produce a display for everyone to remember.

Conlan told in an interview with MTK Global: “The energy from the fans is definitely something I’m going to use. As soon as I’m in the ring it will be straight back to business, but on the way to the ring, I’ll be feeding off it all.

“I knew it was going to sell out, so I’m very proud and grateful to all the fans who bought tickets. It’s a fantastic night of boxing and something I’m looking forward to.

“We’ve had a great turnout all week and it’s an honor to have these people supporting me. Ruiz is not coming to lie down but I won’t either. The better the opponent the better I’m going to perform, and that’s what I’m excited about.”

Along with Conlan vs Ruiz, a huge bill also includes Paddy Gallagher vs. Chris Jenkins for the British & Commonwealth welterweight titles, Luke Keeler vs. Luis Arias, Padraig McCrory vs. Steve Collins Jr for the BUI Celtic super-middleweight title, Sean McComb vs. Renald Garrido Alfredo Meli vs. Araik Marutjan, Olympic hero Paddy Barnes, Dennis McCann, Callum Bradley, Sean Duffy, and Dee Sullivan. The card gets underway in the United States at 3 p.m. ET
