Carl Frampton eager to get a fight back home!
Riding high after his one-sided victory over previously unbeaten Tyler McCreary (16-1-1, 7KOs) on November 30, two-division world champion Carl Frampton (27-2, 15KOs) is ready to reclaim his championship status in 2020.
It was public knowledge that his co-promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank was angling to setup a showdown between WBO junior lightweight champion Jamel Herring (21-2, 10KOs) and Frampton in the new calendar year.
The only thing that could’ve prevented that aspiration from becoming a reality was if the Belfast fighter lost.
While Frampton looked sharp considering he hadn’t fought since last December, he didn’t come out of the fight unscathed.
Speaking to fighthype.com afterwards, he expressed his confidence in fighting at home and revealed he suffered injuries to both hands.
“Using a quote from Tyson Fury, no man born from his mother will beat me in Windsor park! No chance!”
On his hand injuries sustained in the fight:
“I felt like I broke it (left hand) in the first or second round.
“This hand (right hand) I don’t think it’s broke but I think I hurt it in the fifth round. It is what it is.”
Frampton, who seems to be rejuvenated, will obviously need time to heal up. Depending on the severity of the injury, this could end up costing him more time out of the ring.
At the age of 32, he’s obviously going to want to stay active.
