Frampton-González Jr. CompuBox Punchstats

Carl Frampton rose from the canvas twice last night to defend his IBF super bantamweight title against a surprisingly game Alejandro González Jr. in El Paso’s Don Haskins Centre.

While he may have been given a tougher test than expected, the final punch stats confirm that ‘The Jackal’ did more than enough to win on the cards.

In an exciting, if far from perfect, performance, the Belfast man out-landed and out-threw his opponent in most departments, as well as being far more accurate – especially with power shots.
