Michael Conlan’s reaction said it all on Friday night.
As the Belfast boxer stood on the stage, ready to make his ring walk, he soaked up the incredible Falls Park atmosphere.
The 29-year-old walked in to Irish ballad ‘Grace’, a tune he regularly uses at his fights.
This time he had a live version to signal his entrance, with renowned Irish singers singers Róisín O and Aoife Scott on stage to sing the song.
And as this video shows, Conlan was left overwhelmed with emotion as the crowd went wild.
In the video, Conlan says: “Wow! Unbelievable. F*** me, let’s f****** go!”
The Falls Road native went on to beat TJ Doheny in a convincing win to claim the WBA interim featherweight world title.
It keeps the former amateur standout on track for a world title show later this year.
