In the aftermath of his second world title attempt, here at SportsLens we have decided to take a deep dive into Michael Conlan’s boxing career. Read on to find out more about Mick’s professional boxing record, record in world title fights and how many knockouts he has on his resumé.
Michael Conlan Boxing Record
Up to now in his professional career, ‘Mick’ has barely put a foot wrong. In his 20 professional fights, the Irishman has had his hand raised all but twice.
Of those 20 contests, the fighting pride of Belfast has finished nine of his opponents inside the scheduled distance. Since making his professional debut back in March 2017 on St Patrick’s Day at Madison Square Garden, New York, the 31-year-old won five of his first six fights by stoppage. Since then in his next 13 fights, he has added another four stoppage victories.
Some big names in boxing circles such as TJ Doheny, Karim Guerfi, Jason Cunningham, Miguel Marriaga, Ionut Baluta and Diego Alberto Ruiz are just some of the names Conlan has beaten up to now in his professional boxing career.
Conlan isn’t renowned as being a huge puncher, but he has shown in recent fights that he is punching harder than ever and is more spiteful in the ring now.
Conlan has had a fantastic career so far. Almost punch perfect. He has gradually stepped up levels each and every time he has fought. The only defeats on his record are of the course the 12th round KO defeat to Leigh Wood back in March 2022, as well as last time out against Luis Alberto Lopez on May 27th.

Since his first defeat to Wood, Conlan bounced back with two impressive wins last year. He fought Miguel Marriaga in Belfast in August, winning a wide unanimous decision over 10 rounds. ‘Mick’ also showed some of his power by dropping Marriaga on three occasions.
Two fights ago, Conlan put in the most emphatic performance of his career. The Irishman sent the SSE Arena into raptures after knocking Guerfi out in the very first round last December.
Conlan’s second career defeat came last time out as he was stopped in the fifth round of his second world title attempt against Luis Alberto Lopez. The Mexican world champion silenced the loud Belfast crowd, knocking out their hero in five rounds. This takes us up to now in the career of Michael Conlan.
For his world title fight on May 27th, the best sports betting apps couldn’t split Michael Conlan and Luis Alberto Lopez in their pricing. Both men were priced around 10/11 with the best UK sports betting sites. Of course, Conlan unfortunately lost the fight in front of his hometown crowd.
