Carl Frampton looks to set himself up for another tilt at a world title tonight in Las Vegas.

The Belfast boxer is up against Tyler McCreary at the Cosmopolitan Casino in Sin City in what will be his Top Rank debut.

Frampton is aiming to secure a tilt at a title – either in his more natural featherweight class or up at super feather where he could become Ireland’s first three-weight king.

The Tiger’s Bay hero is chief support tonight in America, with Oscar Valdez’s super featherweight topping the bill.

Frampton’s first fight in America since his defeat to Leo Santa Cruz in January 2017, it’s going to be a late one for fans of ‘The Jackal’.

Las Vegas is currently eight hours behind Irish time and Frampton isn’t expected in the ring until 3:00am at the very earliest.

The fight will be shown live on the ESPN+ app in America but viewers in Ireland and the UK can watch the bout via BT Sport.

The fight will be shown live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting at 2:45am (Irish time).

ESPN+ will begin coverage at 11:30pm (Irish time) and the ‘main card’ is due to begin at 3:00am.
