My £2.00 was wisely gambled on yer man Carl doing the business in Brooklyn last night. 2 to 1 odds meant I didn’t put the mortgage on the outcome, but 66 to 1 had me dreaming that he would win the fight in Round 12.
In 1985 Barry McGuigan wore that belt, and he must be well pleased to have trained Carl to go up a weight division and beat the previously undefeated Mexican, Leo Santa Cruz.
Wouldn’t it be great if they have a rematch in Belfast…maybe I’ll start saving up for the tickets. Santa Cruz is 3″ taller and has a reach 7″ longer than Frampton, so how he got inside and got the majority points decision is amazing.
