Frampton crushes Avalos: Belfast photo gallery

Carl Frampton proved once again why he is so highly-rated at 122lbs with a damaging victory over American Chris Avalos.

The undefeated puncher moved towards unification fights the likes of Guillermo Rigondeaux, Leo Santa Cruz and Scott Quigg with the win to the delight of a huge crowd at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on Saturday night.

Avalos was hurt and out on his feet in the fifth, forcing referee Howard Foster to step in and hand Frampton a 20th career win.
