Michael Conlan will take on WBC Latino featherweight king Diego Alberto Ruiz in the cauldron of Féile an Phobail on August 3.
Belfast hero Conlan (11-0, 6 KOs) defends his WBO Inter-Continental strap in the city’s Falls Park, where he’ll face dangerous Argentinian Ruiz (21-2, 10 KOs) – live on BT Sport in association with Queensberry Promotions and on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank.
Conlan, who had originally been slated to face former Olympic rival Vladimir Nikitin only for the Russian to withdraw citing a bicep injury, is delighted at the news of a step up in level for his third 10-round bout.
