During a press conference for his upcoming fight this Saturday – St. Patrick’s Day – at Madison Square Garden, undefeated Irish boxer Mick Conlan was surprised by his fellow countryman, WWE Superstar Finn Bálor. The first-ever Universal Champion came bearing a special gift for Conlan: a Universal Title. In return, the boxer gave Bálor a pair of his boxing gloves, a true sign of the mutual respect between the competitors. During Conlan’s first fight in the United States – also at Madison Square Garden – he was walked to the ring by another fellow Irishman, mixed martial artist Conor McGregor.
