Carl’s life versus Barry’s livelihood!

Battered and bruised, boxer Carl Frampton is recovering following his fight on Saturday in Belfast.

His opponent was Spaniard Kiko Martinez and they fought for the IBF super-bantam weight championship title.

Carl Frampton won, but he paid a heavy price for his victory, as his facial appearance testifies to, in the video at the following link,

In our view, boxing is a dangerous “sport” and should be banned.

Former boxer Barry McGuigan (now Carl Frampton’s manager and promoter,)  speaking on a radio programme after his protégés victory, stated that, if Carl had lost the fight, his (McGuigan’s) livelihood would have been on the line.

In stark contrast, for Mr.Frampton, the stakes were much higher.

His life was on the line!
