On Saturday December 22, 2018 in Manchester, Carl “The Jackal” Frampton (26-1 18 KOs) will take on IBF Featherweight Champion Josh Warrington (27-0 6 KOs). In the USA, the fight will be shown on ESPN+, otherwise you can catch the fight on BT Sport Box Office. It should be interesting to see if Warrington can pull off another upset like he did in his last fight against Lee Selby.
