Thomas Kane sent this report from New York.

There have been few more eagerly anticipated professional debuts than

:03:10.:03:19.

this one. In front of a sell-out cloud, he was walked into the ring

:03:20.:03:24.

by Darren McGregor. The Belfast boxer did not seem overwrought.

:03:25.:03:28.

Stopping his opponent in the third round. Unbelievable. I soaked it all

:03:29.:03:41.

up. I enjoyed every second. Hearing the fans going crazy, it was

unbelievable. Something I will never forget. With then three years I want

:03:46.:03:53.

to be world champion. It is very quick. Yes, but I am in the best

:03:54.:04:02.

hands. We are looking for me to wealth for the next one. A fighter

:04:03.:04:09.

in his professional debut is not launched this week, the main event,

:04:10.:04:14.

but he deserves that. He is going to change the face of boxing. He is

:04:15.:04:20.

going to be a worldwide star. No Irish boxer has ever experienced the

:04:21.:04:24.

height or level of expectation surrounding Michael Conlan so early

:04:25.:04:28.

:04:52.:04:53.

We have had a few hours of dry weather this afternoon but this

:04:54.:05:05.

evening and overnight the rain becomes more firmly established. The

:05:06.:05:10.

rain continuing on and off as we go overnight keeping temperatures very

:05:11.:05:14.

mild. Most places being in double figures overnight. Sunday gets off

:05:15.:05:18.

on a similar footing, grey and dull to begin with, but some good news,

:05:19.:05:23.

as we go through the day the rain is going to clear out of the way, skies

:05:24.:05:28.

will start to Brighton and we will see some sunnier spells between the

:05:29.:05:32.

showers. The badgers holding up well on Sunday, highs of 1213 --

:05:33.:05:40.

temperatures. The warmest temperatures across the south-east

:05:41.:05:43.

of England then the weather front which has brought us so much rain as

:05:44.:05:50.

clear stuff ahead of it. This has been the picture over the last

:05:51.:05:53.

couple of days, grey dull skies. That is going to change as we head

:05:54.:05:59.

into next week. The temperatures are going to drop. There's more mass of

:06:00.:06:03.

air that is giving us double figures will pull away. It will be replaced

:06:04.:06:07.

with something cooler and more showery and that is going to be the

:06:08.:06:14.

case on Monday. Temperatures during the day eight or 9 degrees. Next

:06:15.:06:19.

week pretty unsettled. It is not until the back half of the week that

:06:20.:06:22.

the high pressure starts to build and settled down. Before then, still

:06:23.:06:27.

some pretty unsettled weather and the mix of sunshine and showers.
