Watch Frampton load up on the pads in New York

Not quite the media scrum that surrounds Carl Frampton when he fights in Belfast, but the American press have started to become intrigued by ‘The Jackal’.

He has yet to look Leo Santa Cruz in the face or share some back and fort vibes at a top table with the man in he fights in the Barclay’s Centre this coming Saturday.

However, Ireland’s first unified champion has been doing plenty of media work in New York in recent weeks and today did a public work out.

Not that you can read to much into pad session, particularly one’s that play out in front of the cameras, but coach Shane McGuigan did seem to be working on power punches rather than combos.

With most suggesting the Beflast man will been to land big early to discourage the ever eager WBA featherweight title holder is this a quick glimpse into team Frampton’s tactics?
