The count down from 10 could be on for Carl Frampton fans as the World champion reveals he will most likely hang up his gloves after 10 more fights.
Frampton, who has secured himself a place in Irish-boxing folklore by becoming World champion and the first Irish fighter to ever unify titles, looks set to fight Leo Santa Cruz in a fight the will generate World wide interest later this Summer.
Victory in that clash with the Mexican will see ‘The Jackal’ become a two weight champ and open the door for more massive encounters. It’s massively exciting times for Irish fight fans and they should enjoy them while they last as the Belfast former Irish amateur champion hopes to get out of the game by the age of 33.
Speaking to the Nolan show the IBF and WBA super bantamweight champion of the World said
“You see boxers who go on that little bit too long and you can see it’s had an effect on them. I don’t plan on doing this for much longer. I probably have maximum another 10 fights.
“Probably three and a half years. I’d like to be out by 33, I don’t want to set a definite age limit on it. If I’m still feeling fit and faculties all in tact – but I wouldn’t like to be doing it much more than 33.”
