Carl Frampton, Jamel Herring Ready To Fight Each Other

Las Vegas - Former two-division world champion Carl "The Jackal" Frampton returned from a nearly one-year layoff to dominate the previously unbeaten Tyler "The Golden Child" McCreary via 10-round unanimous decision (100-88 3x) in the super featherweight co-feature.

Frampton (27-2, 15 KOs ) knocked down McCreary (16-1-1, 7 KOs) with a body shot in the sixth round and again in the ninth round with a pair of left hooks.

The scorecards were academic, and now Frampton hopes a showdown with WBO junior lightweight world champion Jamel Herring is in his future.

“I was happy. That was the plan, to target the body," Frampton said. "Tyler is pretty tall. We’ve seen that he’s left gaps. My hand wasn’t great coming into the camp as well. It’s always a bit softer hitting the body than the head. I feel like I hurt it again in the second round, so that’s why it wasn’t the most exciting fight in the world, but I just cruised to a points win. I just wanted to be safe with my hands.
 
“I re-fractured the hand twice in camp, but I knew a lot of people were coming to support me. There was absolutely no way I wasn’t fighting. I know {Jamel} is the champ. I just want to fight for a world title next. I want to be involved in big fights. I would love the opportunity to fight Jamel. I’m not the champion. He’s the champion.”

Said Herring: “Wherever, whenever, I want to fight Carl Frampton. We’re under the same promotional umbrella, so it shouldn’t be a problem.”

Really good fight, giving the edge to Herring due to his sheer size and boxing ability! He’s no Tyler McCreary who was very inexperienced although showed lots of heart! Herring will take Frampton to school and get robbed on the…

[QUOTE=RJJ-94-02=GOAT;20224762]I think he potentially beats Herring, it’s a very competitive matchup IMO.[/QUOTE] I'm not seeing it. Herring is angling for this fight to be in the UK or on the undercard of Wilder-Fury II. We'll see if that comes to…

[QUOTE=JRB123;20223667]He will lose, and that will be it for him. Santa Cruz got a rematch, won it, and then ran from a rubber match. Frampton should have at least got that third fight but nope, Leo high-tailed it.[/QUOTE] I think…

To me after what I've seen the better matchups would be Frampton vs Brechelt. And Valdez vs Herring. I think Frampton is the more complete fighter at this time where Valdez has some work to do before he's ready for…
