It's being reported that Conor McGregor will be involved in his first boxing fight on St Patrick's Day... but not in the way you think.

The UFC star is apparently set to walk Irish boxer Michael Conlon into the ring for his debut professional fight in Madison Square Garden on March 17.

It was announced today that Conlon, who went pro following the recent Olympic Games controversy, will take on American Tim Ibarra in his first bout.

McGregor has yet to confirm his appearance but either way, this will definitely be worth watching!
