“I’m determined to exact revenge on Nikitin and set a record straight on August 3 and I want as many people as possible watching me do just that.

“To those lucky enough to have tickets to be there in person and to all those who will be tuning in from around the world; I can promise you a night to remember.”

The former world amateur champion’s older brother, MTK Global Professional Development Coordinator Jamie Conlan, said: “This is great news for the event, for Mick and for everyone involved.

“Given this is going to be one of the biggest – and certainly loudest – boxing events Irish boxing has seen for many years, having a giant UK broadcaster on board as well as a giant US broadcaster was always inevitable.

“We’ve always had a great relationship with Frank and his team and are delighted to agree this deal with them together with BT Sport and we look forward to working with them on creating a truly momentous occasion.”

Warren added: “Conlan vs Nikitin have unfinished business in the ring and it is fantastic to be bringing this show to BT Sport. Belfast is a massive boxing city; they really get behind their local fighters and August 3rd is going to be another big night of boxing for them to look forward to.”

Féile an Phobail Director Kevin Gamble said: “The announcement that BT Sport will now be screening the Michael Conlan fight night live from the Falls Park during Féile an Phobail along with ESPN+ is massive news.

“This is going to be one of the biggest nights ever in the Irish sporting calendar.”

Further news of fights and fighters starring on this unique event will be forthcoming in due course.
