Where To Watch Michael Conlan's Second Pro Fight In Chicago Tonight

Where To Watch Michael Conlan's Second Pro Fight In Chicago Tonight

Michael Conlan returns to the ring for his second professional contest tonight, where he'll fight Mexican journeyman Alfredo Chanez in Chicago. The former Irish amateur standout won his pro debut at The Theatre in Madison Square Garden, New York on St. Patrick's Day, and is odds-on to improve his record to 2-0 later tonight. Here's where to watch Michael Conlan fight Chanez.

Conlan headlines the UCI Pavillion in the Windy City on a card which also features Denver slugger Mike Alvarado, and will be expected to put on a show in the ring against Chanez.

The Mexican is more rough around the edges than Conlan's previous opponent, Tim Ibarra, the latter of whom reached an American semi-final as an amateur and possessed sufficient fundamentals to frustrate the Irish amateur great for a couple of rounds back in March.

Should Conlan win in Chicago, he's off to fight in Australia on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao's WBO World title defence against Aussie Jeff Horn at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, on July 2nd.

A homecoming in Belfast should be forthcoming in the late Autumn or early winter - most likely around Christmas time.
