Jamel Her­ring set up a su­per-feath­er­weight ti­tle de­fence against Carl Framp­ton af­ter de­feat­ing Jonathan Oquendo by dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion in Las Ve­gas. Her­ring was com­fort­ably ahead when Oquendo was dis­qual­i­fied for re­peated head­butts. “I wasn’t too sat­is­fied with my per­for­mance, to be hon­est with you,” said the Amer­i­can. “I still want the Carl Framp­ton fight next by all means. Novem­ber, De­cem­ber, what­ever. I still want that fight next.”
