‘The Jackal Army’ took over the MGM Grand Garden Arena last night for the Frampton-Santa Cruz II weigh-in.
In scenes which haven’t been seen in Las Vegas since the days of Ricky Hatton, thousands of Frampton fans raised the roof of the venue and impressed the American press in attendance.
And it’s only going to get louder tonight!

@AndreasHale Who needs 20,000 fans when you have 8,000 Irish fans? Same amount of alcohol being consumed

I get the sense that Frampton-LSC could’ve been in NY, Vegas, LA, Ireland, Spain, Russia, Mars, Venus, and CF would’ve had more fans #boxing
