Stephen Fulton defeated defending WBO world super-bantamweight champion Angelo Leo last weekend and has now vowed to halt Michael Conlan's (inset) title ambitions.

Newly-crowned champion Stephen Fulton insists he will crush the world title aspirations of Belfast man Michael Conlan when they meet later this year.

Fulton lifted the WBO world super-bantamweight title last weekend with a fine performance, dethroning Angelo Leo on points in a highly entertaining scrap. While the Philadelphia fighter insists he is not sure what happens next, unbeaten Conlan is on his radar as the mandatory challenger for the WBO belt.

Conlan, who is moving down from featherweight to super-bantam, is expected to return to the ring in April and then move ahead to a showdown with Fulton - possibly in Belfast this summer if fans are allowed to return to sporting events.
