'New York debut I'll never forget' - Conlan

Michael Conlan is delighted with his professional debut after an impressive third-round stoppage of Tim Ibarra in New York.

The 25-year-old super-bantamweight from Belfast has been tipped for the top, and 5,000 supporters turned out for the St Patrick's Day fight at Madison Square Garden.

"The fans were going crazy, the atmosphere was unbelievable. It is something I will never forget," said Conlan.
