Carl Frampton challenges for Leo Santa Cruz’s WBA featherweight title on Saturday night in New York, and it’s going to be a late one.
The bout at the Barclays Centre will be aired on this side of the Atlantic by Boxnation, and Frampton is not expected to be in the ring until after 4AM (Irish time).
Boxnation’s coverage of the clash will go on air at 2AM and they plan to show three of the ten fights on the card.
The televised running order is as follows:
Fight #1 – 2.10am
Tony HARRISON v Sergey RABCHENKO
12×3 Minute Rounds: Light Middleweight
IBF light middleweight eliminator
Fight #2 – 3.10am
Mikey GARCIA v Elio ROJAS
10×3 Minute Rounds: Light Welterweight
Fight #3 – 4.10am
Leo SANTA CRUZ v Carl FRAMPTON
12×3 Minute rounds: Featherweight
The WBA World title
Boxnation are also running a promotional offer of two months for the price of one – which would therefore include Liam Smith’s WBO light middleweight title defence in Dallas against Saul Canelo Alvarez.
