Who is next for Frampton?

Very good fight.

Unlike Kahn....good lord, surely he must bite the bullet and fight De Gale now for the final pay day.
Either Valdez or the winner of Selby v Warrington would seem the most likely at this stage.

Khan mightn't be finished yet.  Be interesting to see what he is like in a proper fight.

He gets knocked down and outclassed in proper fights!

Can understand Khan getting the stick he has dodged those guys for long enough, but the Frampton fight was a joke too.

Khan has fought and beat some excellent fighters but then again has been badly beaten 3 times.  Donaire is not as good as he was plus has been better at lower weights.  It is nice to see a bit of respect too but a lot of what went on has been cringeworthy.

You'd much prefer McGregor's approach?

Carl has never been a trash talker as such and thats his nature.. As for the fight its was a step up from the last fight and while in control for most parts he di take a few punches, Donaire fought better at lower weights, as did Carl, so i dont see your point, yes he's older but not by much.

Needs a good title fight, he seems happy with his training program and the set up so far, hopefully that continues. I was unsure of the partnership at first but things looking good, If Carl wins another title that be some achievement..

Father in Law and my daughter were there and he was telling me they were drinking during the fights at their seats! This has to be a first I'd assume as Ive never seen it done before.. dodgy in the extreme

Nothing new in that at boxing

Frampton and Khan's fights were a load of shite. Fighting complete journey men for a few quid. It's amazing that any of the public gets behind this dung.
Boxers pick their fights. There is about 367 different belts. The whole sport has zero credibility. It's basically WWE without the raza-mataz.

Any of the fights i went to it wasn't allowed. Especially the ones that sky were covering.

Drinking at the seats is new, in fairness there is restrictions around it MR and i think the management thought long and hard about it before it went live.  Drinking at the seats was allowed at Carl's last fight as well.  You are not allowed to purchase more than 2 pints at a time and they properly enforce this.  I ordered at the bar and I had a dribble left in a pint glass while ordering, the girl was only prepared to serve me 1 pint !!  I quickly finished the dribble to take my full quota of 2 pints and proceeded happily to my seat !

I know there are dangers associated with it but i'm in favour of it as long as the safeguards are there ...  If it wasn't for beer during the Tete fight, I don't know what I would have done lol  !!

Carl was looking as sharp as he has been since his first Santa Cruz fight and seems in a good frame of mind.   He will need to be at his best for Selby (don't mean to be disrespectful towards Warrington, he's tough and gritty but only one winner between him and Selby) or Valdez should they materialise.

Agree with Square Ball - Very hard to see where Cummings goes from here.  He must have been heart broken at that result but put on his support face to be in Carl's corner straight after it.  Fair play to Luke Keeler, completely outboxed Cummings. 

@Omagh_Gael -   Great to see Tyrone winning (being a Derry man he's the only Tyrone I will ever support ;-)   ), next fight will be a massive one for him !

I liked the respectful nature at the weigh in and press conferences but it got a bit too much after the fight the other night.  Good name on his record but Donaire is on the slide.  Frampton looked better than his previous fights and was very sharp.  Workrate was good too and he didn't tire (which he seems to do in some fights) which is always my worry with him as his fights are always going to go the distance due to his lack of power.  The training in Spain with Moore seems to be paying off.
