Bob Arum reveals date and venue for Mick Conlan’s second pro fight

Bob Arum has revealed the date and venue for Mick Conlan’s second pro fight.

Conlan [1(1)-0] debuted last month, and it is Top Rank’s intention to bring the Irish boxer to all the major Irish hubs in America as they look to build on his massive marketability.

This tour of sorts will begin next month according to Arum.

The Top Rank boss told top boxing writer Steve Kim that the Belfast super bantamweight will box on Friday May 26th at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

An official announcement is expected in the near future, with a press conference in the works.

It is assumed that the bout, as was his debut, will be aired on UniMas.

Conlan had initially been set to box for a second time on Friday May 12th in Boston, however a venue had not been confirmed to fulfill this plan.

The 2015 World and European amateur champion also is in line to box on the massive Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn card in Australia, on Sunday July 2nd.

Conlan debuted on St Patrick’s Day, headlining a massive event at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, stopping Tim Ibarra in the third round.
