Frampton down twice, fights back to defeat Gonzalez

The Irishman was caught cold in the very first round and put on the canvas twice before eventually gaining a foothold in the contest from round two. Gonzalez was deducted points in the bout for consistent low blows as Frampton began frustrating the Mexican following a change of tactics after a bad opener.

Frampton only looked at his best in spurts but did enough to grind out a result on the scorecards in a fight that will gain the 28 year-old more friends than enemies in the United States. Judges carded 115-109 twice and 116-108 after twelve rounds to ensure Frampton moved to 21-0 to keep his unbeaten run together.

Calls for a fight between ‘The Jackal’ and arch-rival Scott Quigg, who demolished Frampton’s old foe Kiko Martinez in just two rounds on the same night, are sure to be echoed around again – although both fighters now look to be adopting separate paths.

Quigg is close to finalizing a deal to fight multi-weight world champion Nonito Donaire in his next outing, whilst Frampton seems destined to fight stateside once again in another fight under the Haymon banner.
