Carl Frampton: I’ll Be Back With A Bang Next Year

Carl Frampton has revealed that he will be out for the next few months after suffering two hand injuries in his last fight.

The Northern Irishman was most recently in action just last weekend when he outpointed Tyler McCreary over 10 rounds at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, exclusively live on ESPN+ Stateside and in the UK on BT Sport.

Frampton, 32, dropped his American foe, who is now 16-1-1 with seven quick finishes, twice with body shots, despite damaging his left hand which had fractured twice during his training camp.

But ‘The Jackal’ has since made the public aware of the fact that he had also suffered a problem with the right hand.

“The left hand went again in the first round,” said Frampton, who looks set to now have his sights on a clash with WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring, potentially in Belfast in April, “and there is an acute, transverse fracture through the mid diaphysis of the fifth metacarpal with radial angulation at the fracture site. There’s a previously healed fracture at this site.”

The right hand, however, is a fresh injury.

“The right hand went in the seventh round,” he added, “and there is a fracture through the base of the third metacarpal on its radial aspect with likely articular extension.

“On the lateral view, there appears to the dorsal subluxation of the third carpometacarpal joint.”

Frampton issued a dominant performance against McCreary, which saw him come away with a trio of 100-88 verdicts, and the former IBF and WBA Super world super-bantamweight champion and WBA Super featherweight king is expected to be confirmed as the next foe for the aforementioned Herring in due course.

If Frampton didn't have bad luck he wouldn't have any. What a chance he's got and he definately earned it. I hope this operation is successful. As a boxing fan, too watch the Jackel is a treat. There is still…
