Carl Frampton has revealed that he suffered fractured bones in both of his hands during Saturday's victory over Tyler McCreary.

In the wake of that fight, the Belfast boxer admitted that he had to battle through the pain barrier after aggravating an old injury in his left hand in the build-up to the bout.

In what was a recurrence of the freak injury that saw his summer bout in Philadelphia get cancelled after a concrete pillar fell on his hand, Frampton fractured the fifth metacarpal in that left hand in the first round.

Going into the the Vegas bout, Frampton new he would have to manage that injury but he has now revealed that he also suffered a broken bone in his right hand midway during the fight.

Writing on social media Frampton said that in the seventh round he suffered a fracture in his third metacarpal and a partial dislocation of the same bone.

Despite this he outclassed his American opponent, and won 100-88 on all three judge's scorecards in the 10-round fight at a catchweight of 128lbs.

Frampton had promised to retire if he wasn't able to beat McCreary, but he is now targetting a WBO super-featherweight world champion title fight with Jamel Herring early next year.
