Carl Frampton hung his gloves at the age of 34, after losing to Jamel Herring – a former US special agent, in the WBO super-fur title match on April 4.

Herring overwhelmed the competition in Dubai. Thanks to the advantage of height and long arm span, American boxers continuously launched punches, making Frampton inaccessible.

By the fourth half, Herring injured his right eye. Frampton, thanks to that, plays better, but it also doesn’t make a difference. In the next round, Herring gave the exact blow that made Frampton to fall into the ring. The Northern Irish boxer tried to get up to play, but he was once again defeated in the sixth half. Frampton’s team then threw a white towel to ask for defeat. Herring, therefore, successfully defended the super-fur WBO belt (57-59 kg).

Frampton, shortly after the defeat, decided to hang at the age of 34. He said: “I am very sad about this loss. I said before the game I would retire if I fail, and I will keep my word. next time with my wife and kids. I don’t have much time to spend with my kids, so I want to spend the rest of my life with my family. “

Frampton’s last opponent – Herring – used to join a special task force of the US Marine Corps and was on a mission in the Middle East. He started playing professionally in 2015 and has played a total of 25 games, including 23 wins, 2 losses, and 10 knockout wins.
