Frampton called for less sparring, more sensible sparring, no gym wars, education on nutrition and dehydration amount other things.

“Limit sparring rounds, limit sparring to guys one division up or down, be educated on nutrition and dehydration, have concussion

“(S)top constant gym wars, have trainers and referees understand symptoms of concussion and let’s not forget we are in a sport where someone can literally do a short course without any experience and become a professional boxing coach… maybe that needs looked at too.”
