JAMIE CONLAN CAPPED a memorable year for his family with victory over Argentina’s Adrian Dimas Garzon at the National Stadium to retain his WBO Inter-Continental super flyweight title.

After his younger brother Michael secured gold at last month’s World Championships, Conlan was utterly dominant in the four round knock-out of his 39-year-old South American opponent.

The Belfast super-flyweight has now gone 15 fights unbeaten (9 KOs) and will face former world champion Paul Butler in world-title eliminator next year.

Conlan was in control of the fight from start to finish and after landing multiple punches, to both head and body, completed the job in the fourth round with a flurry of blows as the referee intervened.

On the same card, Jamie Cox cruised past Ferenc Albert, Dubliner Ian Tims defeated Mayo boxer Micjael Sweeney and Sean Turner was clinical in defeating Gabor Farkas.
