Belfast boxer Carl Frampton could fight for World title at home next year!

Carl Frampton beats McCreary in his first bout in 12 months

This time last year Carl Frampton was preparing for the fight of his life against newly crowned IBF champion Josh Warrington.

Frampton“The Jackal” was in the best shape of his life with a positive frame of mind and ready to do the business on Warrington’s home turf. The fight didn’t go as planned for Frampton, even though it became an instant, all-time classic of the featherweight division with Promoter Frank Warren claiming afterwards it was the finest fight he had seen in a British ring, ultimately Warrington won and Frampton lost.

This defeat left Frampton reeling and strongly considering quitting professional boxing altogether but luckily for us and his legion of fans, he dusted himself off and got back into training. The former super-bantamweight and featherweight champion returns to the ring this Saturday when he fights at 128lbs in Las Vegas.

He revealed his next fight, if he beats the American, could be against WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring in Belfast next spring!

“It makes sense,” said Frampton of a world title fight against Herring.

“It looks like it is going to happen. There are no contracts signed or anything, but Bob Arum, Frampton’s US promoter has mentioned it to me and Jamel Herring is making the right noises about it.

“The fight against McCreary is at 128 because it gives me the chance to go up or down [in weight]. If a title appears at featherweight I’m happy to step in, but I would like the chance to become Ireland’s first three-weight world champion and fight Jamel Herring.”

But before he can think of his next fight, he must face the 26 year old unbeaten McCreary this weekend!
