Jamel “Semper Fi” Herring (22-2) is the defending WBO 130 pound champion, and this real American hero has been through battle in and out of the ring. Herring served in the United States Marine Corps for two tours of active duty as a gunner, and dealt with death up close in the field and in his personal life. Recently he’s struggled in the ring as well, with frustrating title defenses and the perils of COVID-19. Herring tested positive for coronavirus multiple times last summer, postponing his title defense with Jonathan Oquendo from July until September. 

Once the fight night arrived, Herring faced a new frustration as Oquendo repeatedly headbutted the champ, opening a bad cut above his right eye. The headbuts were ruled intentional, and Oquendo was disqualified. Still many in boxing questioned Herring after he was given the option to continue but he chose to stop. Now Herring has landed a big matchup against a former world champion, and victory could lead to even bigger title unification fights. But based on his recent comments, a loss could mean the end of his career.

Carl “The Jackel” Frampton (28-2) is a former two-division world title holder, but this accomplished fighter has put himself at a crossroads with this fight against Herring. This will be his chance at a third world title in a third weight-class, and Frampton is confident in his ability to land the win. He is so confident that he has said in interviews that he will retire if he loses this fight to Herring. Plenty of boxers have promised to retire and kept fighting or returned to the ring, so take what Frampton says with a grain of salt.

Frampton has a lot of reasons to feel confident. In 2016, he won Fighter of the Year awards from ESPN, the BWAA, and The Ring Magazine. He’s a consensus top-five ranked fighter at super featherweight, and he scored a nice win last August with a seventh round knockout of Darren Traynor. The main knock against Frampton is that his two losses came in his last two world title fights, dropping his WBA title to Léo Santa Cruz in 2017 and failing to claim the IBF title against Josh Warrington in 2018. Frampton is going to need to prove that he once again is ready to win a world title fight.
