Michael Conlan is set to take on Miguel Marriaga in August 2022, but what will the UK Start Time be for the event itself?
Michael “Mick” Conlan of Ireland is prepared to pursue a featherweight world title once more. It’s time for Conlan’s summer homecoming less than five months after his brave attempt against WBA champion Leigh Wood.
As part of Belfast’s annual Féile an Phobail festival, Conlan will face Colombian puncher Miguel Marriaga in the 10-round main event on Saturday, 6th August 2022 at The SSE.
Tickets for the event are on sale and fight fans can purchase them online directly from SSE Arena Belfast.
Here’s everything you need to know about the UK Start Time for Michael Conlan vs Miguel Marriaga Fight Night at the SSE Arena, on 6th August 2022.
Irish Olympian Conlan, who has competed twice, will be headlining for the third time at Féile an Phobail and making his fourth professional appearance in Belfast. He defeated Diego Alberto Ruiz in front of a packed house at Falls Park in August 2019.
When Conlan (16-1, 8 KOs) defeated former junior featherweight world champion TJ Doheny over the course of 12 rounds last summer, Falls Park was once again packed to capacity.
Conlan was given the mandatory position to face Wood after Doheny’s victory. Conlan, who had the advantage on the scorecards, was stopped in the 12th round in an epic Fight of the Year contest.
Since making his American debut in 2014, Marriaga (30-5, 28 KOs), of Arjona, Colombia, has been competitive at featherweight and junior lightweight.
He has attempted to win three world titles, losing against Vasyl Lomachenko in August 2017 for the WBO junior lightweight title as well as Nicholas Walters and Oscar Valdez at featherweight.
Following a decision loss to junior lightweight contender Eduardo Ramirez in December of last year, Marriaga, who is 5-2 since the Lomachenko fight, moves up to featherweight.
As of writing on Wednesday 20th July 2022, the only confirmed official BST timing for the event is 10:00 PM BST on Saturday 6th August 2022 and will live at the SSE Arena in the UK.
