Michael Conlan will face Hungarian David Berna - who has knocked out 14 opponents in his 15 wins - at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

The Belfast fighter will fight on the undercard of the Jose Ramirez versus Amir Imam world title fight at the iconic venue.

Conlan’s last fight came in December when he beat Argentina’s Luis Fernando Molina via a unanimous points decision over six rounds.

The rising featherweight star is aiming to continue his impressive form and put on a great fight for his fans this weekend.

“I’m looking forward to another fantastic night of boxing in The Theatre at Madison Square Garden.

“It will be exactly one year to the day since my professional debut in the Mecca of Boxing. I’m excited and ready to put on a great show for my amazing fans,” said Conlan.

“I know, like last year, thousands are travelling over from home to support me for which I’m hugely grateful. There is only one place to be on St. Patrick’s Day this year, and that is The Garden.”
