Ticket details for this summer’s monumental grudge match between Michael Conlan and Vladimir Nikitin at Féile an Phobail have been announced.
Tickets go on sale at 9am TOMORROW (Friday, May 17) as #TheConlanRevolution prepares to welcome the Russian to the West Belfast festival on August 3.
Conlan suffered a famously controversial Olympic decision defeat to Nikitin back in 2016, with their long-anticipated rematch part of the biggest community festival in Europe.
A former world amateur champion, Conlan has breezed to 11-0, 6 KOs as a professional, while Nikitin is currently 3-0 having turned professional in July 2018.
Conlan said: “I want to right a wrong that should never have been written. Nikitin will get a horrendous reception but I imagine he’ll be revelling in it too.”
Féile an Phobail Director Kevin Gamble said: "For over 30 years Féile has set out to showcase the best of Belfast and there's no better feeling than welcoming one of our own to Falls Park, who's part of the DNA of West Belfast and a hero to many in our area.”
Top Rank Found Bob Arum said: “I’m so glad Michael has this chance to fight Nikitin in front of his own fans. It’s going to be a great night.”
MTK Global President Bob Yalen said: “I can’t wait to see Michael fight his arch-enemy. I’m even bringing my wife over from the States to see this atmosphere. You should be there!”
Tickets will be available from Ticketmaster online and from Ticketmaster outlets, with prices from £30.
