Conlan Awaits U.S. Return Fight
Even though his return to Belfast was a wonderful homecoming, Michael Conlan is looking towards his return to conducting business in the United States.
Conlan would make a major step towards world title contention by outpointing Adelison dos Santos at the SSE Arena on June 30th, Conlan feels prepared to return to the States.
He said: “It’s not going to be hard to adjust to going back to the States. I boxed all around the world as an amateur.
“Back then I saw the full spectrum. I boxed in the Olympics and then in much smaller competitions with hardly anyone there. I know how to adjust.
“Venues, atmospheres – they all change. This game is a business and a lot of my business is going to be based in the US. It’s a different feeling to boxing in Belfast.
When asked for his performance in June, Conlan claimed that, “I’m critical of myself. I would have liked to have got him out of there but we worked on some new things, which was good.”
“This kind of performance will set me up for the bigger fights. I wanted to set my feet more and throw harder shots but I was able to do my new things in a real fight against a proper opponent.”
