Jamel Herring has twice defended the Jr. Lightweight title since claiming it in November 2019 against Masayuki Ito. At 35 years old, there are rumbles that Herring could be entering the ring for the last time in, win or lose. Should he go out on top, there are few opponents that a final defense would demonstrate his dominance against than in Carl Frampton, a champion in his own right.

Like his opponent, Frampton is nearing the end of his career at 34 years old, and has said as much, stating his intent to retire if he loses this contest. According to Express.Co.UK, Frampton is chasing history, looking to claim champion status in three different weight classes, having previously possessed belts at the super-bantamweight and featherweight classes.

What is the Main Card for Frampton vs Herring

Sharing the main card with Frampton vs Herring are a pair of WBO title fights. First, Donnie Nietes (42-1-5) and Pablo Carrillo (25-7-1) will go 10 rounds for the vacant WBO International Jr. Bantamweight title. Following them, Zhankosh Turarov (24-0) vs. Tyrone McKenna (21-2-1) will see the latter challenge for the former for the WBO Intercontinental Jr. Welterweight title in a 10-round bout.

WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring (22-2, 10KOs) is making his third title defence having claimed the title from Masayuki Ito in May 2019. The American fighter last fought in September 2020 when he defeated Jonathan Oquendo – the Puerto Rican fighter was disqualified at the end of the 8th round due to repeated intentional headbutts. That was his sixth win in a row since he suffered the second defeat of his career in August 2017 against Ladarius Miller.

Carl Frampton (28-2, 16KOs) will make history by becoming the first Irish boxer to become a three-weight world champion should he successfully claim the WBO world super-featherweight title in this bout. Although the Northern Irish star has won two consecutive fights since he lost against Josh Warrington in December 2018, he has suffered with some hand injury problems since the summer of 2019. The Jackal fractured his hand after an ornament fell on it back in August 2019 and then four months later he had surgery on both hands following his win over Tyler McCreary. Frampton insists that the hand problems which caused this fight to be postponed from the original date in February are unrelated but there will still be some question marks on whether those past injury issues will be a factor.
