Boxer cuts sparring over brain injury fears

Northern Irish boxer Carl Frampton says he has cut his sparring regime by more than half to reduce his chances of developing brain damage.  But, he’s not stopping entirely, so the danger’s still there.  However, he’s reducing the amount that he does, significantly.

The 30-year-old former two-weight world champion faces Mexico’s Horacio Garcia in Belfast on November 18.

“I’ve got two kids and a missus. I don’t want problems after boxing. You need to be careful,” Frampton said in comments published on the BBC website on Thursday.
