Michael Conlan leaves Los Angeles to link up with trainer Adam Booth

Former World amateur boxing champion Michael Conlan is leaving his base on the west coast of the United States to link-up with renowned British trainer Adam Booth.

Announcing his decision on twitter, the Rio Olympian said: “It’s a pleasure to announce that I will now be trained by @boxingbooth (Adam Booth). Looking forward to a great journey together towards world title.”

Following his controversial defeat at the Rio Olympics, Conlan signed a professional deal with the US based Top Rank promotion company and moved to Los Angeles from his home in Belfast.

Since making his professional debut on St Patrick’s weekend last year in New York’s Madison Square Garden, Conlan has won five fights on the spin – four within the distance.

He is due back in the ring in the ironic New York venue on this St Patrick’s night when he is expected to have his first professional fight over eight rounds.

Based near London Booth has an impressive CV as a boxing trainer having guided both Andy Lee and Ryan Burnett to win World titles in their respective weight divisions.

In his most recent fight Burnett won a unification World belt in the bantamweight division. He returned earlier this month to training having recovered from a neck ligament injury he sustained in that contest against Zhanat Zhakiyanov.

During their respective amateur careers Conlan inflicted a rare defeat on Burnett in a bantamweight bout in the Irish Elite championships.

Conlan has now switched on the featherweight category and it now looks certain he will box in his native Belfast during the latter half of 2018.

He is the second high profile Irish professional boxer to leave Los Angeles and relocate in the UK in recent months.

Late last year unbeaten Donegal middleweight prospect Jason Quigley moved to Sheffield to link up with new trainer Dominic Ingle.
