Carl Frampton has injured his hand

A hand injury to Carl Frampton means his world title showdown with Jamel Herring has been postponed.

Frampton was set to challenge for the WBO super-featherweight title on February 27 in London but will now seek to rearrange for a new date.

The two-weight world champion said: “It is just a bit of a twinge to my hand, nothing too serious, but I have seen a specialist and his advice was to rest it.

“It gives me a better chance because I will be going into the fight with two good hands after taking the advice from the specialist. It is nothing major and there is no fracture.

“I did go into a fight with a hand injury against Tyler McCreary and ended up requiring surgery afterwards on both hands.

“No disrespect to Tyler, but Jamel Herring is a world champion and at a higher level so I need to be at my best. This is what I intend to be.

“I haven’t been able to spar or hit the heavy bags for a while. From next week I have been given the go-ahead to start doing that again.”
