Frampton vs Garcia – Former two division world champion Carl Frampton returns to his native Northern Ireland on Saturday to face Horacio Garcia of Mexico.
Frampton, known as “The Jackal” returns to his stomping grounds after a series of fights in the United States that ended with back to back fights against Leo Santa Cruz that saw him go 1-1. Frampton is likely facing a third bout with Santa Cruz down the line. However, a return to “greener” pastures has been on his mind for a long time. Garcia will be there to try and play spoiler.
A pair of world title fights also sit atop Saturday’s card as IBF super flyweight world champion Jerwin Ancajas ventures to the U.K. for a title defense against undefeated Jamie Conlan and WBO bantamweight titlist Zolan Tete faces the challenge of Siboniso Gonya of South Africa.
Frank Warren and his Queensberry Promotions have a big 13 fight boxing card planned for the SSE Arena on Saturday, check this latest TBC report for more details.
