Frampton Injured by Falling Ornament, Bizarre Left Hand Fracture Delays Comeback

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent





The pride of Belfast, Northern Ireland, former WBA, WBO and IBF World Featherweight champion Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton, has had his scheduled 10 round comeback bout against Emmanuel ‘Veneno’ Dominguez on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at Liacouras Center Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the most bizarre hand accident ever incurred by a boxer outside of a ring, somebody knocked over a concrete ornament structure in the hotel lobby where Frampton was staying. Frampton, resting his left hand on a table at the time, unfortunately had his left hand injured by the falling structure. As a result, the fifth metacarpal of his left hand was fractured.





Frampton, 26-2 -1 with 15 knockouts, will need time for his left hand to heal. Dominguez, 26-8-2 with 18 knockouts, Aguascalientes, Mexico, was coming off a third round knockout win over Jose Roberto Gonzalez in June 2019. The scheduled Haskall Lydell Rhodes versus former WBA World Super Featherweight champion Jason Sosa 10 round super featherweight bout will now be elevated to the main event.





Frampton’s last outing was a 12 round decision loss to 28-0 Josh Warrington for the IBF World Featherweight title in Manchester in December 2018. Warrington is scheduled to defend his IBF world title next in October 2019 in Leeds against an unnamed opponent.
