A hectic four days for Irish boxing come to a conclusion tonight as two of the countries biggest names and one of Ireland’s brightest prospects take to the York Hall ring.
Carl Frampton and Michael Conlan will co main event against Scot Darren Traynor and former European champion Sofiane Takoucht respectively, while former amateur standout Paddy Donovan takes on Plymouth’s Des Newton.
The fights will be shown live on BT Sports across Ireland and the UK and on ESPN in America.
Due to the Champions League quarter finals the BT Sports broadcast will be split. The action begins on BT Sport 2 at 8pm and once the Champions League Quarter Final between Manchester City and Lyon concludes, the show will be live across both BT Sport 1 and 2 from 10.30 for the return to the ring of ‘The Jackal’ Carl Frampton.
Similarly stateside the show will be split. The undercard will be streamed on ESPN+ and the co features will be broadcast on ESPN’s main channel.
The ESPN+ feed is listed to start at 2:30 pm ET, 30 minutes before the BT Sports coverage beings American time, which suggests BT are not going to show Donovan’s fight live.
