LIVE STREAM: Carl Frampton vs Jamel Herring FREE: Live stream, TV


Two of the best fighters at 130 pounds lock horns on Saturday as Jamel Herring defends the WBO junior lightweight title against former two-division world champion Carl Frampton from Caesars Bluewaters in Dubai.

“This is a fight that’s been in the works for a very long time, and I expect both Jamel and Carl to be at their best,” Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said in a press release.

Here’s how you can watch the game.

The bout had been set to occur in Frampton’s home country of Ireland last summer. COVID-19 had just started rearing its ugly head and forced the fight to be postponed.

Herring has made two defenses of the title he won from Masayuki Ito in May 2019. He defeated Jonathan Oquendo via disqualification in September to setup the fight with Frampton.

If Frampton, a former junior featherweight and featherweight titlist, takes care of Herring then he will become Ireland’s first three-division world champion. He’s won two straight bouts since losing a unanimous decision to Josh Warrington in December 2018. In his sole outing of 2020, Frampton knocked out Darren Traynor in the seventh round.

“This fight means the world to me,” Frampton told Ring.TV. “It means the world to the people I have around me; my current team, it means so much to my family and to people that played any sort of a part in my career from when I started boxing at seven years old. This would be the cherry on top. I never dreamed that I would have the chance to become a three-weight world champion. I probably never dreamed that I had the ability to be a three-weight world champion at the very start. Now, to be one fight away from it, feeling as confident as I do, things have fallen into place and it’s gonna happen.”
