Frampton knocks out Hughes

 'Jackal' retains unbeaten record with thrilling finish in Bethnal Green

Carl Frampton stopped Kris Hughes in the seventh round to successfully defend his Commonwealth super-bantamweight title at York Hall.

The man from Belfast, who is being guided by Barry McGuigan, won every round against a much taller man who had little to offer in the form of attack.

Frampton, who has been talked up as an opponent for British champion Scott Quigg later this year, showed plenty of variety as he broke down Hughes piece by piece.

His tactics worked from the outset, repeatedly drawing Hughes' right hand lead before countering with a right of his own.

Hughes tried to work behind a long raking jab but when he did come into range he seemed unable to offload a combination likely to trouble the much smaller man.

The 'Jackal' worked the body early in the third with the left hook clearly having an effect on his opponent. -
