  • Looks like Joshua Frankham’s team tried their best to get their guy a KO against a guy 2-67-1.

      • A good opponent for Anthony Mundines comeback. International experience- true veteran, never been stopped. What happens when the Machine meets Mr Unstoppable.

    • 2-67-1, and he started his career on 10-14-2017. So….70 fights in 43 months??? A lot of undefeated opponents on his record as well. The makings of a tomato can legend here. Would be funny to see this guy lead the “Ali” chant with the crowd like Muhammad Ali used to do?

    • I saw him live and he was pretty exciting. Not a world beater but definitely not unimpressive. I mean he’s a professional athlete and we aren’t but we can always complain like big Jake above.

  • mike conlan has great movement id like to see a showdown between 2 pack shakur. conlas got alot of pull even in ny. gimmie the maloneys anyday though.

  • I just dont get the interest in Conlan at all. He’s just not really good. Hes had time to mature… fill out…. settle into his punches… etc. Its not gonna happen.
