Saturday: Featherweight Phenom Bruce Carrington to Face Brayan De Gracia @ The Theater at Madison Square Garden Live on ESPN

Carrington-De Gracia will serve as the co-feature to the Xander Zayas-Patrick Teixeira main event

NEW YORK (June 5, 2024) — Featherweight contender Bruce “Shu Shu” Carrington will now face Panamanian power puncher Brayan “La Roca” De Gracia in the 10-round co-feature this Saturday, June 8 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

De Gracia replaces Jose Enrique Vivas, who was forced to withdraw from the fight due to a delay in obtaining his visa. Carrington-De Gracia will be the co-feature to the junior middleweight main event between Puerto Rican standout Xander Zayas and Brazilian former world champion Patrick Teixeira.

Zayas-Teixeira and Carrington-De Gracia will be broadcast LIVE on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN+ at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. Sky Sports will broadcast the event in the U.K. and Ireland.

Carrington (11-0, 7 KOs), Brooklyn’s latest championship hopeful, thrilled the hometown faithful with February’s highlight-reel knockout over Bernard Torres at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. De Gracia (29-3-1, 25 KOs) is a 12-year pro who has only been stopped once. He is coming off a closely contested decision loss last July to former world title challenger Edward Vazquez in Texas.
