Prediction,

Good activity for Carl Frampton, that's 3 decent fights in the space of a year. Frampton wasn't at his best when he fought Horacio Garcia, when he came back from his layoff after his only career loss, I questioned what he had left, whether it might be time to retire, I didn't even agree he deserved the decision, I questioned his mentality, his resilience, his ability. Frampton was much, much better against Nonito Donaire, he was like a completely different fighter, boxed very well, won by a unanimous margin of 117-111. Based on how well Frampton boxed against Donaire (who may be past prime, but was in shape, tried his best as well), I would say Frampton is right back in the mix, I don't think he is quite as good as he was in 2016, but I don't think he is much poorer, he still has a bit in the tank, and should be fighting for a world title, before too long.

I think to say Luke Jackson is an undefeated former Olympian makes him seem better than he is, they are facts, but I think because he lost in the first leg and lost one sided, he hasn't boxed at a high level, seemed too well occupied at the level he has fought at, he might not be as good as those two facts suggest, for example, an SD win over Will Young (4-3), doesn't mean he isn't a good fighter, Jackson, because a win is a win, and that was 3 years ago now. Jackson, for this fight, I think should fight the fight of his life, it is a massive opportunity, his ultimate chance to maybe prove that but really find out if he is world class, which I think he probably isn't.

Frampton is a massive favourite, for start, he is the more experienced, has had 10 fights more than Jackson, has had 6 world title fights while Jackson hasn't had any or fought any former world champions, he has 4 years more experience as a professional.
Frampton is a couple of years younger than Jackson.
The level of opposition of Frampton, and the level of opposition of Jackson, over the past few years, most of their careers really, don't compare, and overall, I think Frampton has been more dominant, less occupied at the much higher level he has been competing at, than Jackson has at the lower level he has been competing at.
I think even though Jackson is an Olympian and Frampton isn't, I don't think he had a better amateur career than Frampton overall, Frampton was in various amateur tournaments, including competitions in Romania and Estonia.

Jackson does have a size advantage, he is a good inch taller than Frampton, he has half a foot of reach on him, that is a big advantage, and he has competed at 130, even 135 in his career, he seems to be basically a two weight fighter Jackson, fighting at 126, 130, 126, 130. Frampton, before he fought Leo Santa Cruz, was a world champion at 122, so he isn't a big featherweight, but he is more than adapted to the weight, having fought at 126 4 times in receht years, and he did fight at 126 a few times early in his career. Frampton is an adapted, experienced featherweight, but Jackson is a very big featherweight.

The only other thing you can really say for Jackson is that he is undefeated and Frampton isn't, apart from that and the size aspect, I think everything is on Frampton's side in this fight, but an unbeaten fighter with a size advantage will always be confident he can win, will be mentally strong going into the fight.

I think the fight will start tentatively, Jackson will struggle to get started, and Frampton will be patient, pot shot Jackson in the first couple of rounds, Frampton might be delayed, made to need to concentrate because of Jackson's reach, but his awareness, ability to land the jab, get inside the reach of his opponent will be enough for him to have the first success of the fight. As Jackson takes more chances in rounds 3 and 4, Frampton will make walk into clean punches. I think Jackson will continue to try his best in rounds 5 and 6, but he will be struggling for pace, way out of his depth, and whenever he tries to take a rest, even for a second or 2, Frampton will put it on him, attack him with a flurry, mix it up from body to head. I think Frampton will start to inflict a beating on Jackson in round 6, gradually break away at the target, and really take a toll. I think Jackson will be spent, close to done after 6 rounds, will be out of ideas, his corner will give him a chance, let him go out on his shield, but in round 7, Frampton will pick it back up and stop him.

If Frampton wins this fight, then a world title shot should definitely be next, there is nobody who is ahead of him in the line, he has already done enough to earn another shot with the Donaire victory, and that isn't being generous at all because he was the champion against Santa Cruz, lost to a guy he had previously beaten and agreed to give a rematch to. This is a WBO interim fight, so I would imagine Valdez might be mandated to fight Frampton if he beats Jackson, Valdez vs Frampton would be a brilliant fight, very interesting match up, and a great fight as well, I definitely think it should happen, and I think it will happen. I think if the WBO give Frampton the shot, he will take it and focus on Valdez, but further into the future, there are other big fights at 126 for Frampton, Warrington, Russell, but I think the Santa Cruz trilogy is a fight they both really want, it would be great to see a third fight at some stage in the future, especially if they both have a belt, which would add a unification aspect, and make the third fight bigger and more meaningful than the first two.

Hey Jonny, are the undercards for this fight showing on BT Sports 1 over there, and about to begin? Getting my streams lined up, and wanted to make sure I was correct,

Champion97's picture

I doubt it, seems a bit early, it is still mid afternoon in the UK. Anything now mihht be previews, interviews, weigh ins, press conferences.

SalTnutZ1's picture

That's what I thought, too. I looked up a channel guide to see, and usually when I do that on UK networks(like Sky Sports), it shows BST times, not CST, which I am in. I think BT Sports is actually listing it as CST, having tracked my location, which threw me off. Celtic v Thistle match just ended, now a sports talk show is showing, then it looks like an Arsenal match may be on between. Thanks bud. Just trying to get my ducks in a row for the day.

Champion97's picture

No problem.

And I agree with what you said yesterday, working class fans might have to work 10 hours to pay vs for Fury vs Seferi/Pianeta, terrible!

I think when Daniel Dubois, Anthony Yarde, Nathan Gorman realise they are going nowhere with Fish Eyes, they will sign with Matchroom.

Gold's picture

The whole "earn with Hearn" thing is overrated at this point, they'd be small fish in a big pond. Warren is building Dubois and Gorman up like he should.

Champion97's picture

Very strongly Disagree, Yarde is ready for a big fight, with all due respect my friend, are you just looking for an arguemnt? why is Yarde at a standstill and Johnson about to fight for a world title if what you said is true? Why has AJ been built up the way he has if what you said is true? What is Warren doing for his fighters?, building them up the right way? Who is being built up the right way?

How can you defend Fish Eyes and criticise Hearn even after what me and Clint just spoke about? £56, that's $71 to you, for Fury vs Seferi, and £20, that's $26 to you, for Whyte vs Parker, same price for Joshua vs Klitschko.

Gold's picture

I just think there is a lot of false information out there about Eddie Hearn. He is just another promoter. Hearn apparently has all this money to spend yet he lost the Hooker vs. Saucedo purse bid to Bob Arum which could lose Hooker the fight if it is close and goes to the cards. Johnson is fighting for a world title because no one who was ranked ahead of him by the IBF, including Yarde, wanted the fight. Beterbiev is a low reward high risk opponent. A literal bum could promote AJ, AJ did his own promotion at the Olympics and versus Wlad. The best thing Hearn did was put up the money to get Charles Martin to cash out his belt, and a lot of promoters could do that. I would not be surprised to see AJ go on his own when his contract is up in three years. Dubois and Gorman are being built up the right way right now. If they were at Matchroom they'd join the queue of Heavyweights in the AJ sweepstakes, with another promoter they have more leverage. That's why I think Joyce going to Haymon is smart considering he doesn't have a lot of time to get big fights.

Of course, that is a ridiculous price, but I don't live in the UK. Neither of those would be PPV's if they were in the US on US networks. Whyte vs. Parker was not on any network in the US. People had to stream it. Fury vs. Pianeta is free in the US on youtube as with a lot of Frank Warren's cards.

Champion97's picture

Just another promoter? He is by far the best promoter out there! Look at the fights he has gotten us, who outside of boxers themselves has done the most to put the UK on the map in boxing? When does Hearn not deliver? By far the biggest star in boxing is AJ, look at how well Hearn has promoted him, and all the fantastic cards he puts together.

I don't believe that for a second, Hearn tries his best to make the fights, that's why Jonhson gets his shot at Beterbiev, Yarde isn't avoiding fights, he is not occupied, but he is just another one of these unproven prospects who isn't getting his shot because his promoter is a cheapskate clown. You keep saying that, he isn't, Beterbiev is definitely top 2 at 175 for me! No doubt in my mind Beterbiev or Bivol is the best at 175. Right, so 90,000 at Wembley, and everything else, here's another way of looking at it, if you are AJ, you have a choice of which promoter you go to, who do you go to? If Hearn wasn't the best promoter, why would Joshua be promoted by him? With Matchroom going to the US as well, Jacobs, Andrade, Miller, Hearn has done a phenomenal job! No other promoters did, that's the best thing he did, not make Joshua vs Klitschko?? It is too early for evidence, but mark my words, their careers will progess at a glacial pace, put it this way, are they being built up anywhere near as well Lawrence Okolie, Anthony Fowler and Joshua Buatsi?, no they are not. Join teh queue?, they woukd be built into the AJ promotion, put on undercards, like Okolie and Busatsi. They don't have more leverage, because when you have a bad promoter, there is no point even having a promoter, why do you think Liam Walsh had ti wait so long for his world title shot? Why don't you and most people know who Jono Carroll is? That's more about location I would assume, training with Abel Sanchez at the Big Bear, but in his case, the clock is ticking, 32 is always old for a prospect who has had 5 fights heavyweight and hood amateur, or not.

Well I do, and coming from a British fan, charging us £56 for 'one of the worst fighsts in boxing history', (you're words not mine), is disgusting. Ok, disappointing, but that's hard luck, I couldn't get Rungvasai vs Estrada, Garcia vs Rios, Garcia vs Easter, sometimes, it doesn't get sorted for whatever reason, maybe those networks were all occupied. Is it?, that's not what I heard, I heard you guys will be streaming it.

Gold's picture

I think Al Haymon and Bob Arum are better promoters. Look at the fight he hasn't got us, Joshua vs. Wilder. If Joshua was on his own you best believe that fight would be happening, but now he's fighting Povetkin and apparently might face Whyte next, so it won't happen until late 2019 because of what you call the best promoter in boxing. As I said, a bum could have got AJ to this point, AJ did his own promotion in the ring.

What I said is factually verifiable. The IBF tried to call a mandatory and everyone including Yarde declined it until they got down the list to Johnson. If they wanted to get paid nothing to fight a low reward, high risk opponent, they could have. Koelling got paid 78k to fight Beterbiev so yes, he is a low reward opponent. I think a strong operator like Gvozdyk, Bivol, Alvarez, etc. could box Beterbiev and win comfortably, but that is yet to be seen. 90,000 is a nice number for casuals, but they only made 10 million from the tickets. Canelo vs. Golovkin made 27 million from 17,000 tickets. Hearn was Joshua's best choice at the beginning of his career, but he doesn't need Hearn anymore, he can go it on his own like Mayweather did. Jacobs and Andrade could be doing the same thing with Haymon or Arum. Hearn is doing a terrible job with Miller, Miller is sitting on the shelf facing Adamek because they are just going to keep him busy with low level guys until they give him a shot at Joshua in the US. That's exactly what Dubois and Gorman would be relegated to doing at Matchroom. Guys don't want to play second fiddle when they can be given more attention even if it is with a lesser promoter. Joshua vs Klitschko happened because it was the logical fight to take place given Fury was out of service for the rematch. Joshua should get the credit for being a worthy opponent, not Hearn for doing paperwork. Okolie and Buatsi are fighting at a British level like Dubois and Gorman. I don't know who Fowler is. I don't know about Walsh or Carroll, and I'm not saying Warren is a better promoter than Hearn. I am saying Hearn is overrated and anyone could promote AJ. Canelo had actual bum promoters until he signed with Golden Boy yet became the biggest young star in boxing. You talk about Warren wasting Walsh instead of getting him a title shot, well Hearn is doing the same thing with Miller. Joyce went to Haymon because David Haye is a small time promoter and wasn't going to be able to get him big fights like Haymon can. Like I said about Hearn losing the Hooker vs. Saucedo purse bid, he is going to find out things aren't as easy in the US. Arum and Haymon are a lot better promoters than Warren and aren't going to get pushed around.

Yeah it is, I don't know how that is a successful business model. I don't know how Whyte vs. Parker for 20 pounds is a successful business model and what Warren is doing is way worse. That's unfortunate no one picked up Rungvisai vs. Estrada and Garcia vs. Easter. Showtime picks up a lot of Warren's cards for youtube, I think Warrington vs. Selby was on youtube as well as DeGale vs. Truax.
