Frampton mocks Warrington knockout record

Carl Frampton has ridiculed the suggestion from IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington that he might look for an early night when the pair clash with the world title on December 22 at the Manchester Arena. Warrington confessed that his only slight regret from his dismantling of then-titleholder Lee Selby in May was that he did not attempt to force a stoppage when he had the Welshman tiring and cornered. He vowed to go for the jugular against Frampton.

Frampton responded by posting Warrington’s record on Twitter, circling the champ’s paltry 6 stoppages in his 27 wins. “He may take the pillows off then,” added Frampton.

Ngebinyane wins WBA Pan African 115lb title

By Ron Jackson

Sabelo Ngebinyane won the WBA Pan African junior-bantamweight title when he outpointed defending champion Sikho Nqothole over 12 rounds to win the WBA Pan African junior-bantamweight title the Royal Swazi Spa Convention Centre on Friday night. Ngebinyane (52.15kg) who came off a disappointing loss when challenging Yanga Siggibo for the South African junior-bantamweight title in his most recent fight in April this year upset the form book when he won against the previously unbeaten Nqothole (51.95kg). The bout was closely contested but it was untidy at times as Ngebinyane from Cape Town but now fighting out of Johannesburg did enough to take the decision.

WBC adds extra fight-day weigh-in

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC has initiated a new rule to protect boxers and avoid massive overnight weight gains. The boxers must now weigh themselves in the dressing room of the venue where the fight will take place. Although it’s an unofficial weigh-in, it must be done to monitor that the fighter doesn’t exceed the division limit by more than 10 percent.

The WBC started this policy during last Saturday’s super featherweight title clash between champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt and Miguel “Mickey” Román.
