Michael Conlan’s redemption tour has started. On August 6, Conlan returns to the ring against Miguel Marriaga. “Mick” heads home to Belfast, as the fight takes place inside the SSE Arena. This will be Marriaga’s first time fighting in the U.K.
A 2012 Olympic bronze medalist, Conlan made his pro debut in 2017. He had a productive 2019, beating Ruben Hernandez and Diego Alberto Ruiz, while facing Vladimir Nikitin inside Madison Square Garden. That MSG fight, where Conlan won, was a rematch from their bout at the Olympics, in which Nikitin won following a controversial call.
In August 2021, Conlan beat T.J. Doheny for the interim WBA featherweight title. Facing Leigh Wood for the WBA (Regular) featherweight title in March, Conlan looked like he was on his way to winning his first major title. Wood came back, however, and in the 12th round knocked Conlan out of the ring. Conlan would lose via TKO.

Marriaga made his pro debut in 2009. A WBC Continental Americas featherweight champion, Marriaga unsuccessfully challenged for the WBA (Super) featherweight title in 2015. Winning the WBO-NABO featherweight title in 2016, he once again sought a world title. In 2017 Marriaga lost to Oscar Valdez for the WBO featherweight title and to Vasiliy Lomachenko for the WBO junior-lightweight title.
Marriaga is 2-2 in his last four fights. Back in December, he lost to Eduardo Ramirez via unanimous decision.
