Fight and undercard details
It's been almost five months since the two time Olympian last took the ring. In March, Conlan lost via TKO in the 12th round against Leigh Woods. It was the first time that the Irishmen lost in a professional bout, but it was a thrilling fight between two fighters of the highest calibre.
Prior to Michael Conlan's heartbreaking loss, the 30-year-old beat TJ Doheny and Ionut Baluta in 2021.
The year before had even more success for the Belfast man where he beat both Sofiane Takoucht and Vladimir Nikitin - the man who he controversially lost to in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
This time around, Conlan faces another tough task where he faces Miguel Marriaga who has a professional record of 30-5, with 26 of them 30 wins coming by knockout.
The 35-year-old Columbian boxer also comes into the fight off the back of a defeat. He lost by unanimous decision decision to Eduardo Ramirez at the Staples Centre last December. Marriaga went 20-0 in his first 20 professional fights up until 2014, but has struggled for consistency since.
Also fighting on the card are fellow highly rated Irishmen Paddy Donovan, Kurt Walker and Kieran Molloy.
