  • Maxwell at least had a come from behind, highlight reel ko during his career, which now ? Appears to be over sadly

  • Conlan is shot, he really needs to retire, the punch resistance is gone. I think the Leigh Wood fight took his heart (but made Leigh Wood stronger, who is mentally much tougher than Conlan)

  • This fight was easy to call. I predict he will retire. I had $250 bet on draft kings that paid out quite nicely.

  • Conlan should call it a day. I figured he would win this fight but struggle mightily going forward at 130. Gill is a decent fighter, but he’s no puncher, he’d been out a year and probably belongs at 126 himself.

  • I always root for my Irish people, but it’s time for him to reassess his career. Definitely has heart and would not be surprised if he continues fighting.

  • Both Conlan’s and Maxwell’s career’s ended on the same night. If Conlan inparticular continues ? CTE awaits. All punch resistance lost ala Saad Muhammad sadly.

  • Conlan is the very definition of an exceptional amateur talent that can’t transition effectively to the pros.

  • End of the road for Conlan, some decent amateurs just can’t cut it in the pros

  • Conlan has some unprofessional people around him that are not guiding him correctly and he needs to get out of Ireland and concentrate on boxing like Andy Lee did and he will have a successful carrer just like Andy Lee had. His career is over unless Conlan comes to America and finds a trainer like Robert Garcia or Derek James that can get him in shape and jeep his mind and body away from all his personal problems in Ireland. Conlan should campaign at 126 lbs and on American undercards for the next year or two then challenge for a title and male a defense or two. In 3 years from now he should be at 130 lbs and 4 and 5 years from now should be fighting abd defending his championship. He must stay away from Ireland and the UK. He must fight and defend in the United States and return to Ireland only after he retires. He can win a couple world Championships in his career like Arturo Gatti but he needs a change in environment or its going to be over for him.

    • There is sense in what you say, and if he was 5 years younger without recent knockouts on his record… then yes.
      But he’s 32 with plenty of miles on the clock. Conlan’s ship has sailed and it’s time to hang them up and avoid further punches to the head!
      Great amateur, gave Wood a boxing lesson, until the late KO.

  • This guy became a star by flicking off judges in a dodgy decision in the Olympics. Had a decent career though.

  • Conlan was always overrated. He built his carreer on beating bums, when he moved up, he was found out.
