GRIDIRON football is the sport which traditionally dominates Thanksgiving weekend in America, but for Carl Frampton he too geared up to make that one last run for greatness.

You can say that the man from Belfast moved the chains nicely in outpointing Toledo’s Tyler McCreary over 10 rounds, but to get into the end zone – win world titles that is – “The Jackal” will get a lot more resistance from future opponents.

Frampton has never retired, but the fight with McCreary nevertheless had the feel of a comeback, a fresh start so to speak. Which is fine by Frampton, being that his career has stumbled since that magnificent victory over Leo Santa Cruz back in 2016.
