Former world champion in two weight categories Briton Carl Frampton commented on the defeat of his compatriot Josh Warrington in a fight with Mexican Mauricio Lara. According to Karl, Josh’s team should have refused to continue the fight after the fourth round, and Lara should have the opportunity to compete for the world title.
“Josh missed a lot of hard hits. When he entered the fifth round, he was already acting incorrectly. In my opinion, his team had to refuse to continue the fight in the interval between the fourth and fifth rounds. During such difficult challenges, it seems like you have four or five fights in one evening. It will be very difficult for Warrington to recover, both physically and mentally. There will be a lot of criticism towards Josh, but he is a good fighter and I hope to cope with all this.
We must pay tribute to Lara. I think he will get a champion fight, and I have no doubt that he will win the title. I’m disappointed with Josh’s performance. The road to his return will be very long, ”Frampton shared his opinion.
Recall that the fight between Lara and Warrington took place on February 13 at the SSE Arena in London. Mauricio won by TKO in the ninth round.
