Review: 2014-04-04, good fight between Carl Frampton and Hugo Cazares: it gets three stars. The undefeated Carl Frampton entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 17-0-0 (12 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.4 super bantamweight in the world: last year he fought twice winning the EBU (European) super-Bw belt title against Kiko Martinez (=Frampton vs Martinez) and then he successfully defended the belt against Jeremy Parodi (=Frampton vs Parodi).
His opponent, Hugo Fidel Cazares, has an official record of 40-7-2 (27 knockouts) and he entered as the No.13 in the same weight class (currently the #1 in this division is Guillermo Rigondeaux). Cazares is 36 years old (nine years older than Frampton) but he has won world titles in two different weight classes and he comes off five consecutive wins since he lost to Tomonobu Shimizu in 2011 via split decision (bout held in Japan: Cazares vs Shimizu). Frampton vs Cazares, WBC super-bantamweight title final eliminator. Watch the video and rate this fight!
