IRISH BOXER Michael Conlan has been criticised by many for using the Celtic Symphony as his entrance music into Madison Square Garden.
The former amateur world champion made easy work of Ruben Hernandez at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theatre on St Patrick’s Day.
The boxer walked out into an electric atmosphere in New York City with WWE wrestler Finn Balor also waving the Irish flag behind him as the Wolfetones Celtic Symphony blared throughout the arena.
The atmosphere was described as electric.
HERE. COMES. CONLAN. 🇮🇪

There has been an uproar since from people judging Conlan’s song choice to be controversial. It seemed to inspire the young man who has kept his unbeaten professional run going after Sunday night’s bout.
Conlan has big aspirations in the boxing world and is a proud Irishman and he’s unlikely to be fazed by anyone who wants to convey outrage about his song choice.
Now Finn Balor needs to do the same at Wrestlemania!
