The best laid plans of men often go awry, despite meticulous planning and a track record of success. Carl Frampton sounded dialed in, ready to rock, primed to gain a W in a Saturday main event contest to be screened on ESPN+.
Then, fate intervened, and dealt him a stiff one on the chin. Er, hand actually...
Days before a scrap against Emmanuel Dominguez, the Northern Irishman said a “large ornament” had fallen on his left hand while he was chilling in a Pennsylvania hotel lobby, fracturing his fifth metacarpal.
He was sitting..and then boom...a heavy-duty ornament tumbled onto his hand, on Monday.
And bang, like that, the plan was busted up. And, he will adapt, as such athletes and warriors and successful folks do.
This podcast chat occurred last week, before the hotel incident, so keep that in mind. We will ge an update on Frampton's hand and when he might glove up again.
Second on the podcast is host of Ring Walk podcast, Jonathan Leir. Jonathan combines his love of boxing and his powerlifting background to address some of the recent PED issues in the sport.
