PREVIEW

Chicago fight fans will have a chance to get their Irish up when Ireland's Olympic hero MICHAEL "MICK" CONLAN comes to town. Hot from his high-profile professional debut, a literal knockout performance which took place on St. Patrick’s Day at a sold-out Theater at Madison Square Garden, Conlan continues his U.S. tour, going from the Big Apple to the City of the Big Shoulders. He will headline a nationally-televised event on Friday, May 26, at UIC Pavilion, in a six-round featherweight bout. The card will also feature former world champion “Mile High” MIKE ALVARADO and undefeated Top-10 welterweight contender Alex "El Cholo" Saucedo in separate 10 and eight-round bouts, respectively.
