The 10 best wins of Carl Frampton’s career
- LEO SANTA CRUZ (MD 12 – JUL 2016)
Although he lost his rematch with Santa Cruz the following year, Frampton was victorious in their initial fight, which at that point was a clash of unbeatens. The win saw the Belfast boxer claim the WBA featherweight title and become a two-division world champion.
- SCOTT QUIGG (SD 12 – FEB 2016)
In a highly anticipated unification bout between two undefeated super-bantamweight rivals, Frampton got the better of Quigg and added the WBA belt to his IBF title with a composed performance.
- NONITO DONAIRE (UD 12 – APR 2018)
The decorated Donaire engaged in a top-quality tussle with Frampton at featherweight. Donaire’s impressive showings since this loss have made the victory look even better for Frampton.
- KIKO MARTINEZ (UD 12 – SEP 2014)
On a memorable night at the Titanic Quarter in the Northern Irish capital, Frampton tamed the tenacious Martinez with an assured display and secured the IBF super-bantam strap – his maiden world championship.
- KIKO MARTINEZ (RSF 9 – FEB 2013)
Prior to taking the IBF super-bantamweight title from Martinez, Frampton ripped the European 122lb belt from the Spaniard’s grasp. The defeat marked the first time Martinez had ever been beaten inside schedule.
- HUGO CAZARES (KO 2 – APR 2014)
In his final contest before stepping up to world title level, Frampton made short work of the seasoned Cazares at super-bantam. It turned out to be the former two-weight world ruler’s penultimate appearance.
- STEVE MOLITOR (RSF 6 – SEP 2012)
Molitor’s second reign as the IBF super-bantamweight boss had only ended the previous year, but the comparatively inexperienced Frampton retained his Commonwealth super-bantam crown in style.
- CHRIS AVALOS (RSF 5 – FEB 2015)
Avalos was on a good run of form when he challenged Frampton for the IBF super-bantamweight title, yet the Californian was dispatched with ease.
- JEREMY PARODI (KO 6 – OCT 2013)
Frampton is the only man to have prevailed inside the distance against the tough and experienced Parodi. With the win, Frampton maintained his status as the European super-bantam king.
- LUKE JACKSON (RSF 9 – AUG 2018)
An Olympian from the 2012 Games, Jackson had his perfect record shattered by Frampton in their open-air featherweight collision at Windsor Park in Belfast.
