BBC Sport - Rio Olympics 2016: Michael Conlan enjoys Olympics 'pressure cooker'

Conlan relishes Olympic Games 'pressure cooker'

Belfast bantamweight Michael Conlan tells BBC Sport NI's Stephen Watson that he thrives on the pressure of being considered a medal prospect at the Rio Olympic Games.

Conlan, who is the last remaining Irish male boxer at the Games, earned a unanimous win over Armenia's Aram Avagyan in his last-16 bout at the Games.

"That was one of my worst performances in recent times but it was my first fight of the tournament and I will get better," said Conlan.
