Belfast boxer Carl Frampton has confirmed that former champion Jamie Moore has taken over as his new trainer as he looks to start “a new chapter” in his career.
The Tiger’s Bay fighter, who recently split from manager Barry McGuigan and his Cyclone Promotions team, was previously trained by Shane McGuigan.
Frampton enjoyed many successes after turning professional and held world titles at two weights.
However, he suffered a setback with his first defeat against Léo Santa Cruz in Las Vegas in January.
He then failed to make weight for a home bout with Andrés Gutiérrez, which was ultimately cancelled when his opponent then suffered a freak injury in a fall.
The Jackal is now hoping to get back to winning ways and still holds ambitions of fighting at Windsor Park.
The Northern Ireland football team’s recent triumph over the Czech Republic at the venue prompted Frampton to tweet: “All my dreams will come true the day I get to fight here.”
His new trainer, 38-year-old Moore, is himself a former British, European and Commonwealth light middleweight champion.
He posted a picture of himself and his new fighter on Twitter on Tuesday, before Frampton shared a snap of the pair confirming the link-up on Wednesday.
