Conlan vows to put on show for Chicago


By David Kelly

Michael Conlan says he wants to brew up a storm when he returns to the ring in the early hours of tomorrow morning in Chicago.

Conlan may only be having his second professional fight but once again is the headline act, facing Mexican Alfredo Chanez.

"The people in Chicago have been starved of big time boxing so there has been a lot of interest in this fight and I want to put on a show for them," said Conlan, who made a successful debut on St Patrick's night.

"My debut was a great occasion but the performance wasn't. I know I can box a lot better and the way I have been in the gym I know that you're going to see a much better performance.

"I want to go in there and stop the guy, simple as that."
