Jamie Conlan knows victory on September 6 will guarantee him a family meal and knees-up.

Super-flyweight Conlan faces Daryl Basadre for the WBO Inter-Continental title on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s bid to rip the IBF Super-bantamweight crown from Kiko Martinez in the Titanic Quarter.

Jamie knows a good night out is guaranteed as long as he can beat Basadre.

“My brother Michael won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games over the summer and when one of us wins a fight my dad John takes the while family out for a slap-up meal. But after Michael’s success he said we would wait until I win on September 6, so a big night out is on the cards,” he laughed.

But Conlan knows he will have to be on top form if he is to see off the challenge of Basadre.

“He was Nonito Donaire’s sparring partner and what a fighter Donaire is.

“Basadre is also a big puncher, so I will have to be wary of that, but I am looking forward to the challenge he will bring.

“Training and preparation has gone well and now I just want to fight. The last week usually drags and I just want to get in there and fight,” he added.
