Conlan Wins Pro Debut

Michael Conlan’s off to a winning start as a professional boxer.

The former amateur world champion got a third round TKO victory against Tim Ibarra at a sold-out Madison Square Garden basement arena.

Conlan, who was escorted to the ring by UFC champion Conor McGregor, took the first couple of rounds to find his range before a series of body shots led the referee to halt the featherweight bout after 59-seconds of the third.
