Frampton (26-1, 15 KOs) turned in an impressive performance and scored his first knockout as a featherweight in what was a “dream” homecoming fight at the home of Northern Irish football.  The former 126 and 122-pound champion now has his sights set at becoming a champion yet again in one of boxing’s deepest divisions.

After a dominant seven rounds, Frampton scored a knockdown via a body shot with 30 seconds left in the eighth.  Jackson (16-1, 7 KOs) survived the eighth but was clearly hurt.  With Jackson absorbing continued punishment in the ninth, and down big on the scorecards, Jackson’s corner threw in the towel at 1:21.

"This was unreal," Frampton said. "The atmosphere was special, the crowd was fantastic and they made my dream come true. It was unbelievable from start to finish."

I love Frampton that guy can fight. He's of my favorites! Hopefully he can get the Santa Cruz trilogy.

[QUOTE=rrayvez;19032524]Interesting how when Frampton beat Santa cruz, there were no issues in making an immediate rematch. When Santa Cruz won the rematch, all of a sudden they have no interest in letting Frampton try and avange his loss. Going on…
