What have they said?
Frampton: “I’m 34 now. I won’t be boxing when I’m 36, I’ll tell you that.
“I know there isn’t too long left, and I will get out at the right time. But I still have a few fights left in me.”
“I think my kids Carla and Rossa are looking forward to me retiring.
“And [wife] Christine, hopefully, too. I am not sure. Me being around the house all the time might not be brilliant.”
Herring: “I do take one fight at a time but if I beat Carl then there are mega fights out there for me at super-featherweight and, who knows, I may move up to lightweight.
“A unification fight at super-featherweight would be very big and another world title at lightweight would be great as well.
“Beating Carl would mean a lot, it would be a big statement. I respect Carl a lot, he has done a tremendous job in his career and as a fan I love watching him. Beating him would take me to new heights.”
