Carl Frampton lost inside the distance this past weekend to Jemel Herring in what proved to be the final fight of his professional boxing career.

Going into the bout he promised to hang up the gloves if he lost.

He was a man of his word afterwards.

Fair play to Frampton on a great career and for being a class act.

An exciting fighter to watch and no doubt plenty of bright things to look forward to him for the future.
