    HEARTBREAK

    Great stoppage in there from Jamel Herring, but a heartbreaking night for Carl Frampton.

    ROUND SIX – HERRING STOPS FRAMPTON!

    Another big left hand from Herring puts Frampton onto his back foot.

    And Frampton goes DOWN again! Wow. Big round for Herring here!

    He stops Frampton! Wow. HUGE win for Jamel Herring!

  • Matt Penn

    ROUND FIVE – FRAMPTON GOES DOWN!

    We have a new variable here in round five. Herring's cut. It doesn't look good but he's continuing to battle.

    Frampton has a better round, making it dirty in there, landing on the inside. Left to the body from the Northern Irishman but he walks onto a left hand and Frampton is DOWN!

    Herring gets a breakthrough there. It's a flash knockdown. But that shows the danger in trying to make it on the inside. He got caught coming in did Frampton.

    Battle on the inside this has turned into. But that's a big 10-8 for Frampton.

  • Matt Penn

    ROUND FOUR

    If Frampton is going to win this, he needs Herring to make mistakes. And at the moment, that doesn't look like happening.

    Frampton does manage to get inside in the fourth, however, as he cuts Herring which what could've been a big right hand.

    Herring snarls back with rights of his own in a much livelier fourth round here. That looks a bad cut for the American.

    Frampton definitely getting a more favourable reaction this round. But Herring again comes back with big shots of his own.

  • Matt Penn

    ROUND THREE

    So two rounds for Herring so far. Frampton, at some point, is going to look to come in as quickly as possible. He needs to get inside.

    But he's having real trouble doing it. Herring not making too many mistakes and he's not falling for too many feints.

    Herring really does look so much bigger in there, it's hard to see how Frampton will hurt him, but a nice right hand lands and Herring takes a step back.

    Herring's trainer barking instructions from the corner. 'Don't reach in!'.

  • Matt Penn

    ROUND TWO

    Frampton still looking to make his way on the inside and goes down off a push, which the referee acknowledges.

    Herring doing very well at keeping the action long and rangey at the minute.

    The American lands a couple of nice left hands to the body but Frampton's head movement is smart so far.

    Another close-ish round here. But Frampton looked much better. Herring still takes it after landing some nice shots at mid-range.
