Ah Twitter, where logic and rational thought often have no place whatsoever, particularly in the boxing world.
On a day to day basis Twitter is certainly a great tool for boxing fans, journalists and anyone connected with boxing at all for that matter, in terms of keeping up with the latest sweet science news and happenings.
Alas, some folks use the tool to have the proverbial “go” as they say at different professional boxers online whom it is fairly safe to assume, they would not do in person.
Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton had to put one such Twitter user in his place recently, who tweeted at Frampton saying a certain UFC athlete would probably knock him out:
@RealCFrampton you’d probably get knocked out cold by @MightyMouseUFC

To which Frampton candidly replied:
Who knows? What I do know is I would DEFINITELY knock you out https://t.co/vpELPCR8U4

That seemed to shut down the argument rather quickly…
Trolling on Twitter in boxing has almost become a part of the furniture in the modern boxing media landscape now, where literally anyone can have their say.
Pros and cons to the above, mind you, but I think it’s safe to say Frampton won that argument above.
The Belfast man returns to the ring next month when he challenges Mexican Leo Santa Cruz for the WBA (Super) featherweight world title on July 30th at the Barclays Center in New York.
For those who may not have seen Carl Frampton’s (22-0-14KO) last performance when he beat Scott Quigg in a world super-bantamweight unification, here are highlights of the fight as put together by the Görkem Türk YouTube channel:
