Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz II – Running Order

Tonight, or in the early hours of tomorrow morning depending on your outlook, Carl Frampton will defend his WBA featherweight title for the fist time in a hotly-anticipated rematch with Leo Santa Cruz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

As Nevada is a full eight hours behind Ireland, it is going to be a late one.

Four bouts are scheduled for live broadcast, and all four will be televised live in the UK and Ireland by Sky Sports. In America the first two fights will be shown on Showtime Extreme before coverage switches to the main Showtime channel.

Frampton is due to enter the ring at approximately 4:00am Irish time (8:00pm Las Vegas time).

The preliminary running order for the televised card is as follows
