You made yourself heard: Extremely disappointed Frampton thanks supporters after Warrington loss

 

An "extremely disappointed" Carl Frampton thanked his legion of fans at home and for travelling to Manchester to support him in his bid to reclaim a world title against Josh Warrington.

It was clear the lion's share of support in the Manchester Arena - the home venue for Warrington - was for the Belfast fighter as the introductions were made.

Frampton thanked his fans for "making themselves heard".

The jackal admitted it was correct for Warrington, considered the underdog, to retain his title on a points decision in a fight many have said is a contender for the best of the year and one that will live long in the memory as both gave their all.

The defeat has left the 31-year-old former two-weight world Champion mulling over the future of his career.

On Sunday evening Frampton too to Twitter to thank his fans and his team for their efforts in getting him another title shot.

He said that while he was "extremely disappointed," he congratulated Warrington "who deserved to have his hand raised".
