Mick Conlan on fighting a few minutes from where he grew up and being a world champion in 12 months

first_img“I think he’s a much better fighter,” Conlan said. “A much tougher person for me. He’s a higher ranked guy. Vladimir is very raw as a professional, so he’s very careless and reckless. He would have been easier to tag. I know Ruiz is smarter, will bring a lot more pressure, a higher work rate and good shot selection.” A victory Saturday will put Conlan in line with his plan of securing a world title opportunity, and when that chance comes, the charismatic 27-year-old plans on making the most of it.”Within the next 12 months, I’ll be a world champion, 100 percent,” Conlan said. “I’ll take on anyone. There’s no certain guy in particular. If I get my opportunity, I will make sure I do it successfully and capture the gold. I feel like when I started boxing, my goal was to be the best. I think when the opportunity comes, I will not miss.” Fighters often talk about competing in their backyard, although it is often backyard-adjacent. For Conlan, that actually is the case as Falls Park is literally a stone’s throw from where he grew up. While he has tried to view this as just another fight, it’s impossible because it bears so much significance.”It does get more special each time I’m fighting at home,” Conlan told Sporting News. “It gets that way because the fights are getting bigger, and the opposition is getting harder. It’s an opportunity that I’ll always take because Belfast is my home city. You hear fighters always saying they love fighting in their own backyard. I’m literally a two-, three-minute walk from there. Where the venue is at, my mom and dad used to sit in the garden, and they can hear everything going on at the festival. I’ve had many fights there growing up.”I’m excited. Belfast holds a special place in my heart. And with this fight, it’s going to be more special. I’m within reach of a world title within the next 12 months. You have to look at this as another fight at another venue, but the venue is very close to my heart because I’ll never fight closer to home than this one coming up on Saturday.”Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearConlan (11-0, six KOs) was originally supposed lock horns with rival Vladimir Nitkin. The bout was going to be a rematch of their controversial affair in the 2016 Summer Olympics, where Nitkin won a controversial decision that few thought he earned. Instead, Nitkin bowed out because of a torn biceps. In stepped Ruiz. One would be expected to be disappointed considering how badly Conlan wanted to right the wrong from three years ago, but Conlan looked at the situation completely differently. “The first thing I said was, ‘I’m done. Let’s get another guy,'” Conlan said. “I didn’t dwell on it. I didn’t think about it. My mentality this whole training camp has been better than it’s ever been. I was prepared for anything. I prepared for the best Nitkin. I told my team that when Nitkin pulled out that I need a better guy. Yeah, the storyline with Nitkin was great, but I’m a lot more talented than he is. It was a backwards step, but it was the storyline that made it worthwhile. But now I’m focused on Diego Alberto Ruiz. I’ve been training harder than I’ve ever trained. I’m really happy with my camp. I’m excited for this opportunity to headline in Belfast because I feel like I’m going to show what I’m capable of.” Ruiz (21-2, 10 KOs) comes in having won 10 in a row. While the thought of facing Nitkin was fun for revenge purposes, Ruiz brings more to the table, which gets Conlan’s juices flowing as a competitor. Mick Conlan has only fought once in his hometown, Belfast, Northern Ireland, as a professional — a decision win over Adeilson Dos Santos in June 2018. This weekend, the “Conlan Revolution” is coming back to the Northern Ireland capital and the two-time Olympian is in the main event. He’ll take on Diego Alberto Ruiz at Falls Park as part of the annual Féile an Phobail summer festival where a crowd of about 10,000 people is expected.last_img read more

‘State of Emergency a Blockade to Liberia’s Economy’

first_imgHundreds of Liberians using the highway connecting Bomi, Cape Mount and Gbarpolu counties have complained that the blockade by the Joint Security as a result of the State of Emergency announced by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is seriously impeding their movements. They also complained that it will harm the nation’s economy.The citizens made the disclosure Thursday, August 7, to our reporter who toured the Klay area, where the Joint Security team has a checkpoint.In an interview with some of these citizens, most of whom are business people and commuters, moving between Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, they said the State of Emergency will damage economic growth for this year, if some of the measures are not reduced in favor of business people.They noted that from the economic and business perspective, the State of Emergency is a concern to them because it is going stall economic growth.“The fact is that once your country is under a State of Emergency, which in itself is a disincentive to foreign investors who will not be inclined to choose Liberia until it is lifted,” Maima Kromah, a Liberia businesswoman, who was taking a taxi loaded with goods from Monrovia to Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County, indicated.A resident of Bomi County, Musa Foday, stated that local investors are already in a state of paralysis. “They will not be inclined to move ahead during this State of Emergency,” he opined.The traders argued that although the President is trying to stop the further spread of the Ebola virus in Liberia, the timing of the State of Emergency is not ripe. They believe she should have long since declared the emergency back in March when the disease first broke out.“We agree that she is using her power as the President; but people in rural Liberia need food and other things for their families. So tell me with this kind of situation right now on the this road, how are we going to feed them?” Madam Kromah wondered.The businesswoman projected that if the emergency extends into December, which is the Christmas season, it will have a severe effect on the nation’s revenue intake.All the other merchants who spoke with the Observer proposed that the government of Liberia needs to determine a strategic plan in the fight against the Ebola virus. They said the plan must make enough room for the business sector to operate, with very limited restrictions.President Sirleaf late Wednesday, August 6, declared a State of Emergency through the Republic, to be observed for 90 days (three months).In declaring the emergency, the President said the government will institute extra-ordinary measures including, if need be, the suspension of certain rights and privileges as mandated by the Constitution.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
