And none of the St.Patrick's Day revellers shouted louder for Conlan than UFC superstar McGregor.
Conor McGregor, known for his brashness, told the press he was going to knock Floyd Mayweather out. For me to be headlining this show it is unbelievable. "It was nerve-wracking, but at the same time, I think I handled the pressure for my debut fight and think I'll go on to bigger and better things. I'm really fit at the minute". He is not a pushover. Robles now trains WBO super bantamweight champion Jesse Magdaleno and WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez as Conlan trained and sparred with the two champions in preparation for his debut.
"Well, when you've got one guy moving to another man's sport - that's like me going and playing baseball or basketball". The UFC's first simultaneous two-division champion and current lightweight champion never has been inside a boxing ring for a professional bout.
"Preparation has been great". No one knows what to expect with me, and they shouldn't. I sparred both Jessie and Oscar.
Conor McGregor finally responded to Floyd Mayweather's challenge to fight him and he did it in typical Conor McGregor fashion.
Los Angeles will also be home to Conlan as he has relocated to Southern California. Was it a great fight?
"Coming to L.A.is something I had to sacrifice to be away from my comfort zone, my friends and my family". I was just looking for the knockout.
"I think the fact that anybody is weighing in that there's a contest there is such an incredible disrespect to boxing", Sonnen said on his podcast.
Detecting a fragility in Ibarra, and with 5,102 fans sensing blood, the 25-year-old went hell for leather halfway through the third, when his world class amateur pedigree became more prevalent.
After winning the bronze medal in London in 2012, Conlan gained his notoriety four years later in Rio for his reaction to losing a controversial quarterfinal match against Nikitin, who was hurt so badly by Conlan that he was unable to fight in his next match.
Brazilian super-featherweight and 2016 Olympic gold-medalist Robson Conceicao (3-0, two KOs) made short work of replacement opponent Aaron Hollis, finishing him with a flurry of blows against the ropes 36 seconds into the second round. I would do it again in the morning. Ibarra gave it a good shot, but he didn't have the talent to compete with a fighter in Conlan's class. "Amateur boxing will always be corrupt", Conlan stated.
Top Rank chairman Bob Arum is very high on Conlan's prospects.
"I want to thank Top Rank for making this opportunity available".
The two-time Olympian is also managed by fellow countryman and former world title challenger Matthew Macklin. "I don't know any", he said in quotes appearing in the Mirror.
Conlan, who entered the arena bedecked in Leprechaun attire to commemorate the St Patrick's Day festivities alongside flag-bearer Conor McGregor, worked his way tentatively into the fight. You will see a lot of Irish fans they travel well. Said Conlan, "What an atmosphere, what a night". It was scheduled for six rounds.
He said basking in the boxing crowd's adulation was a thrill.
