Conlan bout live on BoxNation

Michael Conlan's bout against David Berna at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick's Day is to be shown live on BoxNation, which is available on the eir Sport pack.

Conlan, a former world amateur champion, made his professional debut at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick's weekend last year and he will be bidding to make it six successive wins when he faces the  Hungarian in New York.

Now trained by Adam Booth, Conlan is fancied to take the victory but the Hungarian fighter has 15 wins from his last 17 fights, including 14 by knockout, and he will prove a tough opponent for the Irish featherweight. 

"I’m looking forward to another fantastic night of boxing in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. It will be exactly one year to the day since my professional debut in the Mecca of Boxing. I’m excited and ready to put on a great show for my amazing fans," said Conlan.

"I know, like last year, thousands are travelling over from Ireland to support me for which I’m hugely grateful. There is only one place to be on St. Patrick’s Day this year, and that is The Garden!"

Conlan's fight features on the card of the WBC super-lightweight bout between Jose Ramirez and Amir Imam.

Jim McMunn, BoxNation Managing Director, said: "It will be a fantastic sporting weekend for the Irish starting with the Gold Cup at Cheltenham on Friday, a possible Grand Slam in the Six Nations on Saturday, all rounded off with one of their own “Fighting Irish”, Michael Conlan, as he steps into the ring at the legendary Madison Square Garden supported by Irish America on St Patrick’s Day. This is a brilliant card with some serious talent on display. Headlined by two ferocious punchers in Jose Ramirez against Amir Imam for the vacant WBC Light-Welterweight World Title, it will be a bill that promises edge-of-the-seat action from start to finish."
