Carl Frampton is to retire from boxing after he was stopped in the sixth round by Jamel Herring of America in Dubai on Saturday night.
Frampton was hoping to win Herring’s WBO super-featherweight belt and become the first Irishman to win world titles at three different weights.
But Herring proved too good, knocking Frampton down twice before the latter’s camp threw in the towel.
“I just want to dedicate my life to my family now. Boxing has been good to me, it’s also been bad to me.
“The last few years with these boys [trainers Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis], have been the best of my career.
“I just want to go home to my beautiful wife and kids and that’s it.”
WHAT A CAREER
Unbelievable career Frampton has had. Two weight world champion, big fights in Belfast, Manchester, Las Vegas and New York.
