Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton Betting Tips Explained

Carl Frampton’s quest to become a world champion once again will require him to do something no other man has managed in the professional boxing ring – beat Josh Warrington. The Leeds lad has compiled a perfect record of 27-0 on his way to becoming IBF featherweight champion, and in the past 18 months he has recorded two of the biggest wins of his career by beating former world champion Kiko Martinez and domestic rival Lee Selby.

Warrington is now confident of adding former super-bantamweight and featherweight champion Frampton to that list on December 22, and he has claimed he will do it in emphatic fashion by becoming the first fighter to knockout Frampton.

“It is going to be high octane with plenty of energy in there with two fantastic styles,” Warrington told BT Sport. “I think the fight might change patterns in terms of feeling each other out and being edgy, then busy in spells, but I can see nothing else than me taking over from the second half.

“I don’t like making predictions and I see a Josh Warrington win, but I am going to go for a stoppage this time. If I see it I am going to go for it. Coming out of the Selby fight, if I was going to criticise myself or kick myself, I wish I had just pressed on. This time around, if I see the opportunity I am just going to go for it.”

Frampton, of course, disagrees and it appears as though these comments from Warrington may have gotten under the former world champion’s skin a little.

“I don't necessarily have a dislike for Josh Warrington, but I think there is something bubbling beneath the surface and he is a bit more arrogant than he lets on,” Frampton told The Boxing podcast.

“It is just a few things that I have seen recently and it is starting to seep out. Maybe he is getting a wee bit carried away with this world title and fair play to him because he is a world champion and he is entitled to be proud of that. He is getting a bit too carried away though and I think there is a bit of arrogance in there somewhere that he is trying his best to keep away from the public.

“It is just a few wee things that he's said. He's said he's going to knock me out and he doesn't need to say that. It is a bit of an outrageous comment coming from a guy who has had as many knockout wins as I've had world title fights.”

Frampton is right – only six of Warrington’s 27 professional victories have come via stoppage so he does not have one-punch concussive power that is going to trouble ‘The Jackal’. He is an aggressive fighter who constantly comes forward and throws a lot of punches though, and that is an approach that could catch the eye of the judges if the fight goes the full 12 rounds.

However, I am going with Frampton here. He is the more experienced fighter having competed at the top for a lot longer in his career and I agree with his assessment that he is better than Warrington “in every department”. ‘The Jackal’ certainly boasts more punching power, having stopped 15 opponents in his 26 professional victories, and I expect that power to come into play as he uses body shots to sap Warrington’s energy, slow him down and take away his gameplan. And although I would not be shocked to see Frampton stop the champion, I am going with him winning the title via decision. After all, he does only have one stoppage win in the last three-and-a-half years.
