Carl Frampton will takes on the unbeaten American ‘Golden Child’ Tyler McCreary in Las Vegas tonight in his first fight since his unanimous decision defeat by Josh Warrington last December.
Frampton had been scheduled to fight Emmanuel Dominguez in Philadelphia early last August, but was forced to withdraw he fractured his hand when an ornament fell on him in a hotel lobby.
In the weeks leading up to this fight Frampton and his team have firmly expressed that he is preparing for the end of his professional boxing career and wants to end it on a historic high.
The 32-year-old Irishman has moved up in weight classes again to super-featherweight and victory should earn him a shot at world champion Jamel Herring for the title as he bids to become a three-weight champion.

Carl Frampton could fight for a third world title in Belfast next year.
He is being lined up for a shot at Jamel Herring who holds a super-featherweight belt.
“It makes sense,” Frampton told the BBC.
“It looks like it is going to happen. There are no contracts signed or anything, but Bob Arum [Frampton’s US promoter] has mentioned it to me and Jamel Herring is making the right noises about it.
“The fight against McCreary is at 128 because it gives me the chance to go up or down [in weight]. If a title appears at featherweight I’m happy to step in, but I would like the chance to become Ireland’s first three-weight world champion and fight Jamel Herring.”
