When Do Frampton, Fury & Barnes Fight Tonight?

Get to know the expected walk-out times as we get prepped for what should be a memorable night of boxing.

Don’t miss out on watching this one, people!

Windsor Park will play host to the event that features three unmissable showdowns, which are set to be broadcast on BT Sports 1BT Sports 4K UHD or the BT Sports app.

Olympic hero Paddy Barnes will look to take home the WBC flyweight title with a win over Cristofer Rosales in what will be just his sixth professional bout.

He, of course, holds an outstanding amateur record, having represented Ireland in the Olympic games on three different occasions, taking home bronze medals twice.

The fight will be the first featured on the live coverage and should get underway with fighter walkouts around 7:45 pm.

Tyson Fury will make his return to the ring, facing Francesco Pianeta over ten-rounds in the co-main event. He managed to clash with unbeaten powerhouse Deontay Wilder at yesterday’s weigh-ins, something that will no doubt plant the seed for an eventual fight between these two, if all goes as planned.

Of course, he still needs to overcome the challenge offered by Pianeta, but he has certainly cut a much leaner figure this time around compared to his last matchup against Sefer Seferi – weighing in 18lbs lighter.

His fight should see walkouts take place just before 9:00pm.

In the main-event we’ll witness Carl Frampton achieve his lifelong dream of headlining a show in Windsor Park and although he is heavily favoured to defeat his opponent Luke Jackson, the entire spectacle of seeing the champ perform in Belfast should be something special.

Frampton has won his last two since losing out to Leo Santa Cruz and will know that a trilogy bout with the Mexican could be on the cards for the future considering both men have recorded a victory over the other in the past.

His fight is set to go ahead at around 10:00 pm.
