Boxing | Ferocious Frampton sweeps McCreary aside

Back to winning ways! — Carl Frampton MBE (@RealCFrampton) December 1, 2019 Frampton caught McCreary with a stinging right to the body in the second, and 'The Jackal' continued to control proceedings in the third and fourth. McCreary (16-1-) was more aggressive in the fifth, and let his hands go late in the round as he put Frampton under pressure. However, Frampton dropped the American with a ruthless left hook to the body early in the sixth, with McCreary just about beating the count. McCreary survived the rest of the round, and came out swinging in the seventh in a bid to turn the tide of the one-sided fight. Frampton sent his opponent crumbling to the canvas again in the ninth. 'The Jackal' hit McCreary with a left to the head before a crippling double-left hook to the body caused a delayed knockdown. McCreary beat the count again, but never looked remotely capable of producing an unlikely knockout to prevent Frampton from winning every round. The announcement of the judges' decision was a mere formality, and Frampton can now look ahead to another world title tilt. WBO super-featherweight world champion Jamel Herring was brought into the ring after Frampton's victory, with both fighters voicing their eagerness to meet in the ring next year. "I just want to fight for a world title next," Frampton said. "I want them big fights. I would love the opportunity to fight Jamel. If it happens in Belfast, great. If I have to go to New York, I'm also up for that." "We don't turn down no smoke," Herring agreed. "I would love to fight him, either in (Madison Square) Garden, Belfast, wherever the fans want it. Let’s do it."
