To the casual boxing fan the current two-match losing streak that Matt Conway finds himself on might be alarming but to those who follow the sport they know that the 25-year-old Pittsburgh fighter did nothing short of proving that he can fight with the best of them.
In his two trips out west to Nevada, first in October in 2019 in a fight telecasted on ESPN+, Conway picked himself off the canvas in the first round and went the distance in split decision loss to Francisco Esparza in a bout that could had gone either way as the judges final score reflected such with 76-75. 76-75, 75-76.
Conway's next bout found him in the ring with Gabriel Flores Jr. who is considered by many as one of the top prospects in all of boxing.
Like his bout against Esparza, Conway picked himself off the canvas and went the distance with the hard hitting Flores Jr. and earned the respect of many on the big stage as part of the Wilder-Fury II fight card in Las Vegas last February.
Now after nearly a year off from action as boxing was put on pause as the world finds itself in a fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Conway will look to build off his experiences out west and put on for the hometown fans when he headlines this evenings pro card at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Washington, PA.
Conway (17-2) will take on the always tough Vincent Jennings of Michigan in a scheduled 6-round super featherweight bout.
