Carroll still tired to force the fight going into the third round and did indeed find some success. But Framer with his elegant footwork evaded everything and then landed in some head shots. He finished the round with some nice hooks.
The fourth round was mostly about Farmer talking control of the fight as he landed in some combinations while evading any dangerous hit from his opponent.
The Dublin fighter’s mouth guard was knocked out of his mouth in the fifth round after an uppercut hit him as well as his body suffering a severe beating of body shots.
Going into the seventh round, Farmer already had a lead on the scorecards but Carroll was refusing to go down making the fight more thrilling.
Carroll pushed Farmer on the ropes in the ninth round as he dominated Farmer for the very first time in the fight.

Carroll still survived the 11th round’s beating and fought until the last bell rang.
