What Has Michael Conlan Been Saying?

As ever, Michael Conlan is in confident form heading into this one.

He is hoping to improve his professional record to 15-0 and hasn't taken well to his opponent's new nickname:

He is calling himself the ‘Irish Slayer’ so it’s one I can do for the country. ‘I’ll destroy him. I think he is the type of guy who will bring out the best in me.”

He did his talking but It’s different when your face to face with someone. The fact he called himself the ‘Irish Slayer’ and going on about beating to Irish guys in a row, that’s motivation enough for me.

Here's hoping for a big win.
