Carl Frampton is taking a shot at becoming Ireland’s first three-weight world champion this weekend when he steps into the ring with Jamel Herring – and you can watch the whole thing live on free-to-air TV.
The Belfast fighter enters the bout with a sparkling 28-2 record but has only fought on two occasions since December 2018 when he was stopped by Josh Warrington in an IBF Featherweight title fight.
Since then, he defeated Tyler McCreary in Las Vegas in 2019 before toppling Darren Traynor at York Hall during the COVID-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020.
Frampton’s opponent Herring has also been a rare sight in the ring over the last couple of years, having fought just once since November 2019.
The pair will go head-to-head at Caesars Bluewaters in Dubai, but fans in the UK will be able to settle in for the night and soak up the fight without paying a penny.
