  • Carl Frampton Returns This Saturday Night





    Carl Frampton Returns This Saturday Night - This Saturday night former WBA featherweight world champion Carl Frampton returns to fight in his home town of Belfast as he takes on Mexico's Andres Gutierrez. For Frampton, who operates using the nickname "The Jackal" it is the bounce back fight from the first loss of his career, which came this past January at the hands of Leo Santa Cruz.

    The loss to Santa Cruz cost Frampton the WBA featherweight belt and made him 1-1 overall against the Californian. Though there was talk of a third bout between the two, Frampton wanted to return to Ireland for his next fight after a couple of years on the road. Gutierrez is a 24 year old with a lot of fights and 25 knock outs to his name, but he has never fought outside of his native Mexico.

    If I could handle the shame of being an expat, I'd move to UK and live there just for the boxing.

      The Brits with their astute eye can probably handle Rigondeaux where the American public are *****s. I want to see Jackal vs Jackal lol.

        Maybe Frampton (and not DeGale) deserves that #2 UK spot beneath AJ?

            Frampton is a possible @2 I agree, except he is coming off a loss that might drop him a spot or two. Top 5 definitely.

            DeGale is an interesting case, I dont know what it is with him. He is a gold medalist but he has looked a bit lazy in his last few fights. I might have him behind Brook, who i still think is a very sound fighter.Joshua, Frampton, Brook, DeGale?

              I think of Brook as potentially broken beyond repair.
