16/03/12 'The Jackal'

As we stumble into the 17th March, otherwise known as St Patricks day i wanted to take this opportunity to do an article on 25 year old Featherweight Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton. A great prospect to come out of Belfast,  Northern Ireland, and a 12-0 professional. Winning the Irish Flyweight and Featherweight titles in 2005 and 2009 and a silver medal at the amateur Boxing Championships, Frampton turned professional and beat Sandor Szinavel. 2010 saw Frampton beat Scot Gavin Reid to win the Celtic title and be named prospect of the year, his last fight on the 28th January saw Frampton successfully defend his Commonwealth Super Bantamweight title which he won in September against Mark Quon. Barry McGuigan describes Frampton as the best prospect out of Ireland and makes it very clear that Frampton is one to watch. Everyone will now be looking at Frampton to take on British Champion Scott Quigg as they both look to dominate and lay claim to being the best in the division. Frampton has reportedly called out Quigg but nothing has really materialised yet. One thing for sure The Jackal is defiantly one to keep a close eye on in the future.
