+1. Lovely stylish boxer, seems like a lovely lad. Saw him box a few times in the National stadium and the point. Thought his time had come and gone TBH. :happy clapper: :happy clapper: :happy clapper:

Frampton will be a huge hit on tv, hopefully this will lead him to some big domestic fights against quigg and that galahad and imo hell beat both of those.

I see rigodneaux has been knocked down twice in his last fight, in a year or two I can see Frampton being able to get to him as well.

Big future ahead for this guy

There's a rumour about ticket sales being the real reason.

Whatever the case it has been moved to Manchester.

Hats off the to amateurs again. Two golds and a bronze from the Europeans as well as qualifications to the Worlds in October. The Wolrds are Rio 2016 qualifiers so getting there is the first step.

IABA putting the amateur back in boxing again. After last week's Billy Walsh fiasco they've named him as coach for the tournament in Poland next week without saying anything at all about what that actually means for his current position and whether they've resolved their differences or not.

In fairness there's a little more to the original story than has been described so far, not quite as straightforward as it seems.

From the World Championships in Doha Ireland have a bronze medal for Michael O'Reilly, at least a silver for Michael Conlan and Joe Ward fights tonight to upgrade his bronze to at least a silver and to secure his place in Rio 2016. Michael O'Reilly faces the other middleweight bronze medalist, Egypt's Homas Abdin, on Thursday to decide who goes to the Olympics.
