Youíll find it hard to find a boxer not linked to him now. Iím sure if we were in the same position we would happily take Kinahan money.

Speak for yourself Jim, itís not as if Frampton was a nobody when he hooked up with them.

If he didnít win that court case I suspect he wouldnít have had that much money to show for his career all things considered. Bound to be a factor.

This venue resembles a parish hall.

Fairly comprehensive that. Never really looked in it.

Frampton was a good fighter. Never great.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

That will probably be the end for Frampton.

Herring just way too big and he was hurting Frampton.

Great career. Should retire now as he looked totally done there.

He confirmed post fight there that thatís it. His victory over Santa Cruz was one of my favourite moments in boxing.

Frampton had said before that he'd retire if he lost and for whatever reason I actually believe it. He's done and has been for a while. Herring is a step below the best in the world around 130/135 and took him out pretty handily.

Good on Jamie Moore throwing in the towel btw.

His wife is retiring him on twitter anyway.

Herring is probably as bad a match as their is for Frampton at that weight. He has 8 inches of a reach advantage.

For me the Warrington fight was the end of Frampton as a top level fighter. He was outworked that night and hurt too often by a boxer who Iíd suggest wouldnít have troubled him too much in his pomp and who wouldnít be known for having heavy hands. Heís had a great career and seems a genuinely decent bloke. Best wishes to him in his retirement.
That was never a square ball!!
