Frampton is a former two-weight world champion, having held the WBA (Unified) and IBF super-bantamweight titles from 2014 to 2016, as well as the WBA (Super) featherweight title from 2016 to 2017. In 2018, he also held the WBO interim featherweight title. Between 2011 and 2014, he held the European and Commonwealth super-bantamweight titles.

By winning the featherweight world title in 2016, Frampton became Northern Ireland’s first boxer to hold world titles in two weight classes. This resulted in him being named Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine, the Boxing Writers Association of America, and ESPN.

Frampton was ranked as the world’s fourth-best active super-featherweight by BoxRec and the fifth-best active featherweight by The Ring in December 2019.

The former champion has a respectable 28-3-0 record as of May 2021. (16 KO). This results in a 51 percent knockout rate for Frampton, which is very impressive for a fighter in the lower weight classes.

His only three defeats came at the hands of champions. His first defeat came in a rematch against ‘El Terremoto.’ In a highly anticipated event, his second defeat came at the hands of Yorkshireman Josh Warrington. Frampton was defeated by Jamel Herring in his final match.

In 2021, he fought for the WBO junior lightweight title against Jamel Herring. He was unsuccessful and ended his active career.

However, due to Frampton’s hand injury, the fight was rescheduled for April 4, with the venue changing to Dubai. Frampton suffered a sixth-round technical knockout loss.

After the fight, Frampton said in an interview, ” I said before the fight that I’d retire if I lost. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’ve been away too long. I missed them growing up, my own kids. I want to give my life to my family. Boxing’s been good to me, it’s also been bad to me in recent years. I’ve enjoyed the best years of my career and now I just want to go home to my beautiful wife and kids.”
