Citizens Report American Irish Culture

Podcast: May 20, 2017

McCann’s Irish Oatmeal presents the Houli’s Hooley. This week’s episode features a very special guest in Super Bantamweight Irish boxer Michael “Mick” Conlon. Until recently Mick was the most celebrated amateur boxer in Ireland’s history. He made his pro debut with Top Rank at Madison Square Garden this past St. Patricks Day to a sold out crowd and scored a TKO in the 3rd round. Friend and fellow fighter Conor McGregor led him to the ring. Mick is in Chicago this week to promote and fight in his second professional event at the UIC Pavillion on Friday night May 26th. Mick joins the fun this week to talk some smack ala McGregor, reminisce on his outstanding amateur career, his dream debut at the Garden, the amazing support from Irish Americans and the prospect of becoming world champion.
