Michael Conlan Enjoyed A Laugh At Vladimir Nikitin's Expense Last Night

Michael Conlan Enjoyed A Laugh At Vladimir Nikitin's Expense Last Night
By PJ Browne

The man who 'beat' Michael Conlan at last year's Olympic Games was in Dublin on Friday night. Vladimir Nikitin was at the National Stadium for the Elite International Boxing Tournament.

Conlan was eliminated for the Olympics in hugely controversial circumstances last August. Nikitin would go on to claim a bronze medal at the Games.

Since Rio, Nikitin has moved up from bantamweight to lightweight. He was was up against Galwayman Patrick Mongan last night.

After Nikitin took the first round on the South Circular Road, Mongan stormed back in the following two. He eventually won the fight 4-1.
