Conlan Coasts To Decision
For the third straight St. Patrick’s Day, Michael Conlan won inside the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The two-time Olympian controlled the pace of the fight inside the same venue he started his professional career, as Ruben Garcia Hernandez would get frustrated throughout the unanimous decision victory.
This is the first time that Conlan would go the distance on the holiday celebrating Irish heritage, with his first two fights never going past the sixth round.
Garcia’s corner nearly stopped the fight prior to the eighth round, but he soldiered on for the final two rounds.
With the win Conlan becomes 11-0 as a pro with five of his six career stoppages coming inside Madison Square Garden.
