Carl “The Jackal” Frampton was forced to drop out of Saturday’s featherweight main event against Emmanuel Dominguez at the Liacouras Center after fracturing the fifth metacarpal in his left hand. The injury occurred Monday morning at the fight hotel when someone knocked over a concrete structure, which then struck Frampton’s hand.
