Finn Bálor surprises fellow Irishman Mick Conlan at Madison Square Garden
During a press conference for his upcoming fight this Saturday – St. Patrick’s Day – at Madison Square Garden, undefeated Irish boxer Mick Conlan was surprised by his fellow countryman, WWE Superstar Finn Bálor. The first-ever Universal Champion came bearing a special gift for Conlan: a Universal Title. In return, the boxer gave Bálor a pair of his boxing gloves, a true sign of the mutual respect between the competitors. During Conlan’s first fight in the United States – also at Madison Square Garden – he was walked to the ring by another fellow Irishman, mixed martial artist Conor McGregor.
Both Conlan and Bálor were in attendance for the New York Rangers game the night before the press conference.
Finn Bálor returns to Madison Square Garden Friday, March 16, and Conlan’s fight takes place the following night. Tickets are still available for both events.
