Ever wondered what it would be like to enter the ring to take on a world champion? Well then this is your lucky day

The 360 video, produced by Electric Ireland, allows to see what it is like to spar with the 2015 world champ and Olympic medallist Michael Conlan.

Let's just say we wouldn't want to be stepping into face him in Rio next month, especially when you get to experience - virtually at least - what it is like to take a knockout punch from the bantamweight from Belfast.

Speaking about his involvement with the #ThePowerWithin campaign and his prep for Rio, Conlan said: “I’m often asked what it’s like to be in the ring, sparring with an opponent and now you can put yourself in that position to get a feel for what it’s like. I am fully committed and focused for what is ahead of me in Rio. That gold medal will be around my neck and I will bring it home for Ireland.”
