Frampton back on track with Vegas victory

Carl Frampton wants to challenge Jamel Herring for the WBO super featherweight title after getting back to winning ways with a dominant points victory over Tyler McCreary on Saturday.

McCreary went into battle twice, from a body shot in round six and from hooks to the body in the ninth.

It was a solid performance and marked a winning return for the former two-weight world champion, who hadn't fought in nearly a year.

Frampton (32) dropped McCreary in the sixth and nine rounds to seal a shut-out (100-88) win.

The Irishman has previously held world titles at super-bantamweight and featherweight.

'I re-fractured it twice in the camp and I knew a lot of people were coming out to support me.

"I'm not the champion, he's the champion. I just want to fight for a world title next", Frampton told the BBC.

Frampton extended his record to 27-2 despite going into the fight with a number of fractures in his hand.

"Semper Fi" would provide one of the greatest Irish fighters of all time with the chance to become the countries first three weight world champion - and the opportunity to make history certainly appeals to the Jamie Moore trained fighter. I just wanted to be safe. I would love the opportunity to fight Jamel. I'm preparing for a tough fight, and like I said I'm not taking my eye off the ball.
