WBO Inter-Continental featherweight titlist Michael Conlan (11-0) and Vladimir Nikitin (3-0) famously fought at the Rio 2016 Olympics where the far better boxer, Conlan, was controversially outpointed by the Russian after beating him comprehensively over three rounds.
The Belfast man, now trained by Adam Booth, then stood in the centre of the ring and gave the middle finger, rightly so, to all ringside judges, who were investigated and sent home soon after their shocking verdicts.
Now Conlan aims to right the wrong and exact his revenge against the 29-year-old.
