Irish Olympic boxers Michael Conlan and Paddy Barnes have been added to the same New York undercard.
It was announced yesterday that bronze medalist Paddy Barnes had been added to the same bill that Michael Conlan will headline at the epic venue that is Madison Square Garden, on St. Patrick’s day next year.
American promoter Bob Arum announced the exciting update yesterday, and Belfast native Paddy then confirmed it on social media.
On Twitter he shared this pic and said, “Thanks @Trboxing for confirming myself on @MickConlan’s bill on St. Patrick’s day.”
While the upcoming New York fight will be Michael’s professional debut, Paddy will debut as a pro at Belfast’s Titanic Exhibition Centre next month.
