Frampton says that Taylor more than held her own in the ring with him.
Carl Frampton, who has held world titles at 122 and 126 pounds, spoke with Sky Sports about Katie Taylor, who will go for an undisputed lightweight championship this Saturday in New York, live on DAZN.
Frampton remembers working and sparring with Taylor years ago.
“Katie was the standout female amateur boxer on the planet,” he said. “She used to train alongside us, and she sparred with us. I sparred Katie a number of times. I’ve always had a good relationship with her, she’s a quality boxer, she’s always been brilliant. I always loved watching her, even in the amateurs.”
