I think Carl can do it if he gets the distance under control. Obviously Herring has a massive advantage in height but will he use it? Not always easy punching down too. So I’m going to tip Carl.
Former IBF champion
I’m so impressed with Carl. He gives away height and reach but what a great fighter he is, what a great career he’s had and what a way to bow out. He’ll mix it up. He won’t be predictable. I think it’s going to be a bit of everything, try to make him fall over his front foot and counter him. It’s a tough, tough task but Frampton on points.
I think this will be a close fight which goes the distance. I’m a big fan of Carl Frampton and I back the “Jackal” to win a close points decision.
I expect Carl Frampton to cap off a fantastic career by walking down and outpointing Jamel Herring. I think Herring will be very tricky for the first few rounds and might even build an early points lead but Carl will wear him down in the second half.
I am looking forward to seeing the plan that Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis have cooked up for facing a much taller, longer opponent in Herring. But few others have a better judgement of distance than Frampton. He can win a unanimous decision in a fight where he has to take some stick.
