Fight action starts on ESPN+ at 1:05 p.m. ET/10:05 a.m. PT.
(Oct. 20, 2022) — Light heavyweight contender Leon Bunn hopes to author a signature victory win over undefeated Irishman Padraig McCrory in a 12-round main event this Saturday, Oct. 22 at Fabriksporthalle in Frankfurt, Germany.
In addition to Bunn-McCrory, two of Top Rank’s most dynamic young talents — featherweight Kurt Walker and junior middleweight Kieran Molloy — will see action in separate six-rounders. Molloy will fight 38-bout veteran Sandro Jajanidzez, while Walker steps up against Colombia’s Yin Caicedo (6-4-3, 2 KOs), who has never been knocked out.
Fight action will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ at 1:05 p.m. ET/10:05 a.m. PT.
Bunn (18-0, 9 KOs) formerly held the IBF International belt and defended that strap in a career-best victory over former world title challenger Enrico Koelling in November 2019. He’s won three bouts since the Koelling triumph, most recently stopping Tunisian southpaw Islam Teffahi. McCrory (14-0, 8 KOs) is an all-action fighter from Belfast who has knocked out his last four foes in five rounds or less. He is coming off a one-sided fifth-round destruction over former world title challenger Marco Antonio Periban.
