What have they said?
Frampton: “Boxing has given me plenty more than it has taken out
“If I was training like I used to and doing the amount of sparring rounds I used to do then I would not be where I am now. It was just not good for you physically or mentally.
“Getting your head shaken that often, doing 220 rounds of sparring before every fight – and a lot of those up against light-middleweights – is madness when I think about it.
“I owe boxing a lot, there have been so many good times but a few bad times too.”
Herring: “I am saying, when I win I want to unify or go up in weight to fight another champion.
“I respect Carl Frampton, I have been a fan of his for years and hopefully when this is all done we can sit down and be friends and laugh about our fight.
“But I still have this hunger, his career is set, he has done it all and can walk away happily now.
“I have so much more I have to accomplish.”
