Carl Frampton vs Jeremy Parodi; The Jackal Comes Alive!!
(Picture by Russell Pritchard: By Cutman’s Stool: “Frampton Comes Alive!” as it is billed will be an electrifying night of boxing. I don’t say this lightly, Belfast has one, if not the best atmosphere for a boxing match anywhere else in the world. Very few places on the globe can compare to the passionate support from the Capital of Northern Ireland. The fans are truly fanatic and the support they give the home guy Carl Frampton (16-0, 11 KO’s) is nothing short of magnificent.
The knowledgeable fight loving fans give nothing short of 100% passion when it’s fight night. Fight night now for Ulster’s biggest star possibly since Barry McGuigan is less than 24 hours away.
Belfast has spit out another skilled fighter, many in Belfast claim he is the real deal and is a real hope to bring another world title back to Ireland. Right from the belly of the beast, a hardened place called Tiger’s Bay. A true proud working class area, hardened from years of being in one of the most feared places during the troubles. Originally built to house workers for the famous Harland and Wolff shipyard, home of the RMS Titanic. A community that’s been through it all, comes a diamond from the ruff. Proud home of the man they call the “Jackal”.
European Champion, Carl Frampton defends his title against Jeremy Parodi in an IBF Super Bantamweight World Title Eliminator. His manager, hall of famer, Barry McGuigan shares the peoples great ambitions they have of the Jackal, “He’s got enough talent and power to win world titles from 122lb to 130lb. He can be a global boxing star. Carl Frampton will win a world title, if not in his next fight, then the one after that.
Frampton has his eyes on the best of the division when asked about the great Guillermo Rigondeaux he told the BBC “I obviously want to box at home as much as possible but I would be telling lies if I said that I didn’t want to fight in America before my career was over.”
“Rigondeaux is the main guy in the division, in my eyes, and everyone else’s eyes, he’s a hell of a fighter. He’s getting on a bit though and I’ll be ready to fight him in a couple of fights, I’m getting pretty close.”
In his last fight, to win the European title, the Jackal knocked out Kiko Martinez who since has went on to win the IBF world title after beating Jhonatan Romero by way of TKO. This has only rallied on the Frampton camp more, knowing that they have already defeated a world champion convincingly.
A week before his own wedding, Carl Frampton faces the challenge of defeating a man who has never heard the count in 37 professional fights. I personally think Carl Frampton under the guidance of Shane and Barry McGuigan will be a world champion in 2014. He’s a great talent and has the professional attitude to take him all the way. This fight is not to be missed, The Jackal will show what he’s all about live on BoxNation when he comes alive!
