Irishman Michael Conlan will return to the ring this Saturday at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast to fight the experienced Colombian Miguel Marriaga.
Conlan will reappear five months after his last fight, in which he lost dramatically by knockout to Leigh Wood for the World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight title.
The Olympic medalist wants to get back on track and seek new opportunities for a world title, which has led him to work hard and try to recover as quickly as possible.
He will face Marriaga, a renowned fighter who has had fights against rivals such as Vasyl Lomachenko, Oscar Valdez or Eduardo Ramirez. The South American is a warrior and a complicated opponent in this situation.
The local fighter has a record of 16 wins, 1 loss and 8 knockouts. The visitor has 30 wins, 5 losses and 26 knockouts.
