Irish hero Jamie Conlan will face his second Mexican in a row when he takes on Junior Granados at the National Stadium, Dublin, on Saturday 4th July.
Conlan, himself known as ‘The Mexican’ for his all-action style, could now be tagged ‘The Mexicutioner’ if he defeats the Yucatán hardman in his Dublin homecoming.
The 28-year-old defeated Mexican Jose Estralla over ten exciting rounds last September and now aims to follow that up with a win against Granados, a former WBC Mundo Hispano Champion.
Belfast ace Conlan makes the first defence of his WBO Intercontinental Super-Flyweight title against Granados in his first fight in Dublin for over five years.
Conlan headlines ‘New Beginning’, an action-packed card promoted by Frank Warren, in association with MGM Promotions, featuring some of the best up-and-coming Irish talent, including Belfast’s hot-shot Ryan Burnett; Dublin prospects Anthony Fitzgerald, Declan Geraghty, Brendan Fitzpatrick, and son of the legend Steve Collins Jnr.
