The Mick is back…and this Friday, you will see him make his debut at Junior-Featherweight. 🇬🇧🇮🇪Michael Conlan (14-0-0, 8KO) has certainly become a favorite among boxing fans, and he is on the pursuit to elevating his status as a contender at the age of 29.
He made a personal decision to drop down from Featherweight, to start his pro journey at 122 lbs. with the intent to make his power a more relevant commodity, which should heighten his max performance, and chances towards winning a world title.
He certainly isn’t taking a softball touch in his first fight at the weight class, as he will be fighting #9 WBO contender 🇧🇪Ionut Baluta (14-2-0, 3KO), who is on a high note, defeating former world titlist TJ Doheny, and David Oliver Joyce in back-to-back fights in 2020. Could the Belgium fighter make it 3 solid wins in a row?
This will be the co-main event to the Mthalane/Edwards card that will go down at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London. It will be broadcast on the ESPN+ streaming app.
