For those who still haven’t seen it, and for those who want to relive it, Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz will be replayed tonight on terrestrial television.

The fight which saw Frampton become Ireland’s second ever two-weight champ and vault himself into the pound-for-pound Top 10, will be shown in it’s entirety on BBC1 Northern Ireland from 10:45pm.

A momentous night which will be long remembered in Irish boxing history, it saw the birth of a new global boxing superstar as ‘The Jackal’ defeated the previously-unbeaten three-weight World champion in front of a raucous crowd at the Barclays Centre in New York.

Jane Tohill, Executive Producer for BBC Sport Northern Ireland said: “It’s been described by many experts as the fight of the year, and one which has firmly established Carl Frampton’s reputation as world class in the US. We’re delighted to be able to bring fight fans full coverage of all 12 explosive rounds on BBC NI.”
