Jamie Moore thanks Carl Frampton’s doubters


Jamie Moore has thanked Carl Frampton’s doubters ahead of ‘The Jackal’s’ massive world title fight tomorrow night.

The trainer, who is said to have reinvigorated a jaded Frampton and transformed a fighter happily heading toward retirement to a fighter with unification and legacy ambitions, claims his job has been made easier by those who have questioned the 31-year-old talent.

Moore himself hasn’t seen too many outside of opponents trying to plant a seed of doubt in the former two-weight world champion’s head..

However, he points out those who have have added to the challengers drive and desire leading into this weekend’s BT Sport PPV broadcast IBF world title fight with featherweight titlst Josh Warrington.

“Personally, I have not seen that much criticism of Carl. I haven’t seen people saying he is on the slide and things like that. It is more his opponents hoping he is sliding. That’s why they mention it,” said the former Irish, British and European champion.

“From whatever area that is coming from, it is just driving Carl on and it will make him perform miles better. So they are doing me a favour,” he added before claiming anyone who has written off the Belfast superstar is crazy.

“I don’t understand why people are writing Carl off. It is a crazy,” he said.

“He is still quite fresh. He is 31 years of age and is at his peak. He is by far in the best form I have seen over the past 18 months.”

“Carl feels he has a lot to prove. I have fighters like Martin Murray, Rocky Fielding and Tommy Coyle in the gym, who all sit back and watch each other performing.

“And every one of them is saying how much Carl has improved. He looks more focused and determined, he looks sharper.

Having adjusted Frampton’s training regime, reducing sparring and alternating the intensity of sessions, Moore has also having played cupid to give the challenger with unification plans a new love for the game.

The former Irish, British, Commonwealth, and European champion now believes we will see something special from the Tiger’s Bay boxer tomorrow.

“I believe that this performance will be the best of his career to date,” outlined Moore.

“Going off the form he has shown in the gym, people will see a massive improvement. Not just a small one.”

“That’s saying something, because Carl has always been very impressive in the gym. But the way he has been sparring recently, it has been unbelievable. If he carries that form into the ring, which I am confident he will, you will see a special performance on Saturday night.”
