    Con Sheehan looks relatively promising. Look forward to seeing more from him this year. Finally an Irish born HW to be semi-optimistic about.

    Frampton fought the wrong fight and failed to make adjustments. He should have stuck to feinting and countering, forcing LSC to lead off ...which worked well for him in the first fight.

    OR gone in the trenches and slugged it out at very close range with his shorter arms and greater power.

    He did neither. Shane wasn't great in the corner, to put it mildly. perhaps a more experienced man in the cornerCredit must go to Leo, though. It looked like he had a plan, had Carl figured out and he stuck to it.
    Has he Carl figured out for ever? Would he ever lose to Carl again? Is a rematch even advisable for Carl?

    He never looked "right" not even at the weigh in. They bulked him up too much expecting a war of attrition, and he lost his speed, lost the spring in his step as a result. They gambled on the fight being a crude slugfest and went for strength and power and it backfired badly when Leo chose to box clever.

    Bulked him up?
    He weighed in the same weight he was in the last fight.

    He physically looked the same as he always did. In great shape

    I never like to hear stories of boxers lifting twice their body weight and putting on 13 lbs between weigh in and fight...that sort of nonsense might work with dopey rugby players...not boxers. A full stone put on in one day! The guy is 5'4" or 5'5" ! 13 lbs on that tiny frame is madness.
    He hasn't "grown into" featherweight...he has eaten and weightlifted his way out of super bantam.
    He could end up falling between two stools ..not able to make 122 and too small for today's 126 division.

    He's always put on weight in between weigh in and fight.
    He's a blocky guy who cuts to make weight.
    Why do you suddenly think it's a problem?
