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

NEW YORK— 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.
