History will be made Saturday when Jamel "Semper Fi" Herring puts his WBO junior lightweight world title on the line against Belfast's former two-weight world champion Carl "The Jackal" Frampton at Caesars Bluewaters Dubai.


This will be Dubai's first-ever first world title bout, and if Frampton is victorious, he would become the first Irish boxer to become a three-weight world champion. Herring, meanwhile, is looking to notch the third successful defense of the title he won from Masayuki Ito in May 2019.

Herring-Frampton will stream live and exclusively in the United States on ESPN+ (4 p.m. ET), with undercard action scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
