Last night, over in Belfast at the Odyssey Arena, Carl Frampton spectacularly defended his European Super Bantamweight title with a sixth round knockout of his French challenger Jeremy Parodi.

With the reward for the winner being touted as a crack at the IBF champion Kiko Martinez, a fighter Frampton has already beaten, it surely is only a matter of time before the Belfast boxer fulfils his potential and becomes a world champion.

Parodi arrived in Belfast with a more than respectable record having only lost once in thirty-seven fights but Frampton didn?t allow his opponent the chance to settle and was all over him from the off, totally out-classing the Frenchman who couldn?t cope with the speed of Frampton?s jab as the Belfast fighter dominated the fight from the centre of the ring.

The fourth round saw Parodi staggered by a hard left but the Frenchman showed tremendous spirit to stay on his feet despite being hampered by a cut eye, but in the closing stages of the sixth round a left hand thudded into Parodi?s body and the Frenchman slumped to his knees to be counted out.

After the fight, Frampton remarked to the media,

‘I feel great. Every super-bantamweight in the world, I am coming for you.?

Perhaps his manager, Barry McGuigan has got it spot on when he predicted, in the build-up to the fight, Frampton would become a global star.
