We don’t often have 2 promising, talented young undefeated contenders on the come-up meet before each make some sort of splash on the Championship level these days, so it has to be appreciated when two decide to take their risk proving their worth against one another.

Rest in peace to 🇯🇲🇬🇧Kirkland Laing, who passed away yesterday on June 9th, at the age of 66. You may know him best from his historical upset victory over Roberto Duran in 1982 – earning Ring-Magazine accolades for his win. He is often thought of as one of the best British fighters to win a world title, and was certainly one of the better fighters overall who never earned a trinket at the world level.

Former Unified WBA & IBF Super-Bantamweight Titlist 🇬🇧Carl “The Jackal” Frampton (22-0-0, 14KO👊) moved up in weight, to immediately face whirlwind WBA Featherweight Titlist 🇲🇽Leo “El Terremoto” Santa Cruz (32-0-1, 17KO👊) as the headlining event for Showtime.
