Carl Frampton has admitted lessons have been learnt after his successful IBF World title defence in El Paso on Saturday night.

Frampton was twice put down in the first round by Mexican Alejandro González, Jr before recovering to boss the rest of the fight to win on points.

‘The Jackal’ was disappointed with his performance in the USA - but he says it will not happen again.

“I think as a team, we probably overlooked this guy a bit and we thought it was going to be much easier than it was.

“But he’s a young Mexican, he had a young family, he had a big chance to upset me and he went out and had a brilliant first round. But luckily enough I pulled it back and got the win,” he said.

Frampton also admitted that “there were mistakes made” in the preparation for the fight.

“I’m not going to put my head in the sand here. I know there were mistakes made, my teams knows there were mistakes made and we’ll learn from them and I think I’ll become a better fighter from it,” he said.
