Carl Frampton, Erick Ochieng Dazzle With TKO Wins

By Alexey Sukachev

York Hall, London - Carl "The Jackal" Frampton (12-0, 8 KOs), a young super bantamweight terror of Belfast, Northern Ireland, impressively kept his Commonwealth 122lb title with a dominating win over challenger Kris Hughes (15-2, 1 KO) from Scotland. Frampton, a protege of IBHOF entrant Barry McGuigan, got the job done at 0:48 of the seventh round with a crushing right hand to the head of the Scottish battler.

Frampton, 24, easily dominated the very tall Hughes (5'11'') with tremendous body attacks, which weakened both the ribs and will of the fighter from Glasgow. Hughes tried to keep the champion at bay with calculated jabs but his shortage in power department justplayed against him and in favour of Frampton. He kept stalking his opponent, and from round three a premature end to the fight was just a matter of time. Frampton chose to concentrate on the body and easily nailed Hughes with one hard left hook after another. He also often started his attacks with solid right bombs. In round seven, previous punishment, delivered to Hughes, started to count and soon Frampton put him between the ropes with a perfectly-timed right cross. Hughes beat up the count (getting help from one of his cornerman) but referee Marc Green immediately waved the fight off.

-------------------------

In a crowd-pleasing phone booth war, hard-nosed counterpuncher Erick Ochieng, 24, from Kenya by way of London, England, impressively stopped previously unbreakable Nick Quigley (now 10-2, with no KOs) to acquire the vacant BBBofC English light middleweight title at 0:10 of the ninth round of their fan-friendly encounter.

Both fighters gave it their all in a toe-to-toe give-and-take performance, which was mostly fought near the ropes. Quigley, the lighter puncher of the two, made up for his shortage in weapons department with his will and a higher workrate. On the other hand, Ochieng landed more solid and sharper punches while not forgetting to put his body out of trouble. Quigley got some success with the body bombardment in the starting rounds, but as the bout progressed, "The Eagle" methodically picked his opponent apart with vicious uppercuts and excellent retaliation. In rounds eight and nine, Quigley ate an assortment of punches and was forced to retire in his corner; his team putting a halt to the fight. Ochieng is now 9-1, 3 KOs. The BBBofC English title shouldn't be confused with the more prestigious BBBofC British belt.
