Gonzalez Jr demands a Frampton rematch

ALEJANDRO Gonzalez Jr wants to do it all again with Carl Frampton.

The Mexican gave ‘The Jackal’ an early scare in El Paso, Texas on Saturday night, but was eventually beaten by a wide 115-109, 116-108, 116-108 points margin.

However, the son of former World champion Alejandro Gonzalez, felt he won the fight and was looking for a rematch straight after the clash.

Indeed, Gonzalez Jr said he was happy to come to Belfast to get another shot at Frampton and his title.

“I definitely won the fight, I was much more effective,” said Gonzalez. “I want a rematch and I’m happy to do it in his hometown. I’ll take whatever fights are best for me either at 118 or 122.”

Gonzalez Jr put the Champion on the canvas twice in the first round, but was out boxed for the majority of the fight and his early good work was undone by point deductions for low blows.

Speaking after the entertaining clash the challenger bemoaned the referee’s decision to take a point of on two separate occasions.

“The ref overreacted to the low blows, I was just doing my body work,” Gonzalez continued. “I’m not a dirty fighter, I play by the rules and this was disappointing. He’s a good fighter but I’m the best he’s ever faced.”
