WATCH: Carl Frampton on the pads with new trainer Jamie Moore

Belfast featherweight Carl Frampton [23(14)-1(0)] is currently over in Manchester getting to grips with his new trainer.

‘The Jackal’ has linked up with former Irish, British, Commonwealth, and European light middleweight champion Jamie Moore at the VIP Gym in Astley just outside the city.

Short footage of Frampton and Moore doing padwork has been released today.

‘The Jackal’ is currently ticking over while he makes his decision on what promoter he will go with before he dives into camp for his comeback fight.

Frampton is joined in the VIP Gym by fighters such as Tommy Coyle, who fights Belfast’s Tyrone McKenna next month, and Rocky Fielding, who is training here whilst coach Oliver Harrison recovers from health problems.

Frampton has spoken of how he is enjoying life under Moore – and that his weight is lower than expected.

The Tigers Bay 30 year old is prepping for the next stage of his career following his split with the McGuigan family last month.

He remains advised by Al Haymon, and this week brought on board Mack The Knife Global. A confirmation of his new promoter is expected in the next couple of days.
