IN what was his first fight for almost a year, Belfast’s Carl Frampton got back to winning ways with an impressive 10-round decision win against previously unbeaten American Tyler McCreary in Las Vegas on Saturday (November 30).

The talented 32-year-old was in control throughout and managed to make a dent in McCreary in both the sixth and ninth rounds. In the sixth, he dropped the Ohio native with some well-placed body shots, while in the ninth he sent him to the deck for a second time, this time thanks to a couple of hooks to the midsection.

The result, in the end, was never in doubt and Frampton’s dominance earned him scores of 100-88 from all three ringside judges.
