Prediction,

This is a good match up, Carl Frampton needs a fight, he needs to stay active, he'll be coming off a 10 month layoff, longer than ideal perhaps, but the delay for his comeback fight could be worse, it is not even a little bit his fault, he did have a fight scheduled for July, but his opponent had to withdraw at more or less the last minute, due to nasty facial gashes from a slip in the shower. Frampton hasn't fought since he parted ways with the McGuigans, he is now trained by Jamie Moore, I see them being a great team, but we'll see as Frampton has his next few fights. Horacio Garcia is a solid opponent, I saw him against Joseph Diaz, on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins's final fight, in December last year, he did well, stuck around, tried, won a round on my card, he's not a bum.

I think Frampton will win the fight, with no real trouble, but he'll get some rounds in the books, and he'll be somewhat made to work for the win. I think Frampton will start at a steady pace, outboxing Garcia in the first 3 rounds, picking up the points, with Garcia, ticking the box for effort, throwing a lot of shots, taking risks, withstanding the consequences from Frampton, but I think he'll have very little success, and he won't be winning any of the rounds. I think Frampton will step it up through rounds 4-6, raise his work rate, increase his punch output. I think after 6 rounds, Frampton will be ahead, 60-54, in a fight the judges won't have any difficulty scoring, and in round 7, Frampton will drop, really hurt, and stop Garcia, looking great when doing it, getting back to winning ways.

I think Frampton is very much deserving of a third fight against Leo Santa Cruz, it is 1-1, after all, Santa Cruz does have more options, he may fight Abner Mares next year, instead of, rather than as well as, Carl Frampton, I would blame him, it isn't easy to prepare for two of these big fights in one year, but it is manageable, so maybe Cruz and his team will agree to fight them both in 2018, if he beat Mares and Frampton in one year, what a year that would be, but Santa Cruz, though, I think top dog at the moment, and it could stay that way, Mares and Frampton are threats, they could upset him, and Frampton, well he could be also looking to fight Mares and Santa Cruz next year, talking of good years, 2 big wins in 1 year, Frampton did that in 2016, he beat Scott Quigg, he beat Leo Santa Cruz, two 50/50 fights, gave two unbeaten world champions their first losses, in my opinion, won 15/24 rounds that year, he may be looking to do that again, he and his time might think they can negotiate a rubber match against Santa Cruz, sooner than we think the fight might happen. Scott Quigg also, looking to fight Mares and Santa Cruz, now working with Freddie Roach, coming off two good wins himself, I'm sure he wouldn't say no to a rematch against Frampton, the featherweight division certainly isn't short of competition, this is without even including Gary Russell Jr, Oscar Valdez, Lee Selby, what a division.

What a fight!
I thought Garcia nicked this one, very close fight, those scores were ridiculous, if Frampton won, it was by a maximum of 3 points, but no problem with the verdict. I wasn't at all impressed with Frampton on a whole, he's a good guy, he's a warrior, he's a very good fighter, but I'm not sure if that performance against Leo Santa Cruz was the ultimate endeavour in his career, because he lost the rematch, I don't buy the talks of bad tactics, or Shane McGuigan misinstructing him, and in this fight, he looked great for 3 rounds, and then he faded, he looked like he was really struggling for pace through most of that second half, he took some big shots, he looked vulnerable at times, I don't think he deals well with body shots, his defence was good, but he didn't move his head enough, and he was hkg with a lot of clean punches, he didn't get knocked down, but on my scorecard, he didn't do quite enough to win.
I wonder if maybe, we might have seen the best of Carl Frampton, I think he's 30, not old, but not young, we saw Roman Gonzalez, Nathan Cleverly recently, same age, looking like declined fighters, so Frampton may just have given all he can to boxing, maybe I'm wrong, maybe Garcia was far better than he has ever been in this fight, maybe it was the 10 months, that played a small part, but it is hard to say that given how sharp he looked in the first 9 minutes, it may have just been an off night, just one of those nights a fighter has, when he just flat, can't get going, and looks poor. I think Frampton deserves the opportunity against Santa Cruz, assuming he meets and defeats Abner Mares, who is a threat to Cruz himself, maybe that fight can happen in a year's time, if Frampton stays busy, has another fight next year, maybe he could give Garcia a rematch. I think Frampton should aim for the Santa Cruz fight, and if he loses that, wider than he lost their rematch, provided he is financially secure, I think he should retire at that point.
