Carl Frampton is maturing, says manager Barry McGuigan

IBF world super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton is improving all the time, says his manager Barry McGuigan, after watching his young protege defend his title against Chris Avalos.

"He's improving and maturing all the time and dismantled his opponent," said McGuigan after the contest at Belfast's Odyssey Arena.

"He assessed the guy in the first two rounds and was able to change his gameplan - that's the sign of a world-class fighter."
