Jamel Herring retained his WBO super featherweight title after stopping Carl Frampton in the sixth round of their fight in Dubai on Saturday. Here is what Herring (23-2) had to say afterwards: “It’s been a lovely time out here in Dubai. The people have been so welcoming. I wanted to do more but had to take care of business, but I will be back soon. It was an emotional rollercoaster to get here. My last outing wasn’t the best, but I wasn’t going to quit. Carl Frampton is a tremendous champion and I have been a fan since day one. He’s one of my favorite fighters. He’s a two-division world champion and has done great for the sport of boxing. It was an honor to share the ring with him, and I hope he gets home safe to his family. It was a great night for me, and now I want another title. To any of the other champions out there, if you want the fight then we can make it happen.”
Herring dropped Frampton in round five and six, before Frampton’s corner threw in the towel.
