Irish stars Jamie Conlan and Peter McDonagh are hard at work training in Marbella as they prepare for their respective title bouts on Saturday November 7.

Conlan (14-0, 8 KO) tops the bill live at Dublin’s National Stadium as he returns after his thrilling win over Junior Granados in his BoxNation TV debut in the summer.
Known as “The Mexican” for his aggressive fighting style, the super-flyweight star stages the first defence of his WBO Intercontinental title against an opponent yet to be named. A win would only further boost Conlan’s standing with the WBO, where he’s currently ranked.
The charismatic Belfast fighter has spoken of his desire to face domestic rival Paul Butler in what would be a mouth-watering clash between two of Britain’s best super-flyweights.
“He’s done it at bantamweight, but was exposed at super-fly against Tete, I feel that I have his number and would expose him. He’s show more weaknesses in the fights that he’s won than he’s lost,” Conlan said.
“I get asked everyday ‘When are you going to knockout him out?’ I believe that the fight has got to happen soon. I want it, he wants it, the fans and press want it, so bring it on.”
Stablemate Peter McDonagh is also training hard for his vacant Irish Welterweight title showdown with Dean Byrne on what promises to be another fantastic night of live boxing on the Channel of Champions.
