Jamie Conlan is looking forward to taking to the ring in the National Stadium in Dublin on Saturday night.

The Belfast Super-flyweight Conlan was involved in a shoot-out the last time he fought at the Stadium when he was downed twice in the seventh round by Junior Granados.

It was a fight that will live long in the memory as Conlan climbed off the canvas to claim a points victory.

The atmosphere that night was electric and Conlan is hoping for more of the same when he takes on Adrian Dimas Garzon.

“The atmosphere was something else.

“I have never experienced anything like that before.

“It was electric it was hair on the back of the neck stuff.

“Usually in the ring you are not to aware of much outside of it but on that night I was.

“It gave me something extra no doubt about it and it did help me when things were not going for me,” added Conlan.

And Conlan is looking to win in Dublin then kick on with his career.

“I have to win at the Stadium and then take it from there. I would love to fight Paul Butler.

“That fight is logical for both of us because there’s not too many quality little guys about.

“We’re both trying to push on to bigger things, both believe we can beat the other so hopefully it’ll materialise early next year.

“I’m really excited by the rivalry that’s building and I’d happily go to the mainland to challenge Paul, especially if he was defending a decent belt. A ring’s a ring. That’d really put fire in my belly. I see weaknesses in him and not just when he got stopped in his world title fight.”

Meanwhile on Friday night at the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin Matthew Wilton will look to get another win on his record as he tackles Aleksandar Chukaleiski.

Wilton has racked up 11 wins out of 11 so far as a professional and he will be looking for win number 12 before he fights at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on November 20.
