Frampton Says New Promoter Must Deliver Windsor Park Fight

by Shaun Brown

Promoters looking to work with former IBF Super Bantamweight champion and WBA Featherweight champion Carl Frampton now know what they have to do to secure his services.

In his weekly column for Northern Ireland newspaper Sunday Life 'The Jackal' said that any new promoter willing to work with him must deliver an outdoor fight at Windsor Park in Belfast, the home of the national football team.

"There can't be any deal with anyone if that is not set in stone because this is my dream and it has been for a long time," said Frampton.

Frampton said he feels "jealous" and "annoyed" that he hasn't tasted the famous atmosphere at Windsor Park as a fighter.

"There is a real unity between the players and the fans and it's the same with me and my supporters," he added.

Last week the 30-year-old announced Jamie Moore, himself a former British and European Super Welterweight champion, as his new trainer after parting ways with Shane McGuigan and the promotional team at Cyclone Promotions.

"What I need is someone to give me good tactical advice and get me fit, someone I can trust when I'm in the corner taking instructions," he said.

"I'm not saying I didn't trust Shane McGuigan's advice, it's just that I have moved on. I had it in my mind to try out a few coaches but after a couple of days I knew that I had gelled with Jamie."

Promoter Eddie Hearn has already voiced his desire to work with Frampton again. Frampton won the European Super Bantamweight title against Kiko Martinez in 2013 while fighting under the Matchroom banner.

Boxing Scene contacted Hearn last week to see if there was any progress to him working with Frampton again. "No movement! the 38-year-old replied.

Frampton was last in action back in January, his last fight working with Shane McGuiigan in his corner, when Leo Santa Cruz avenged his July 2016 loss to the Belfast native with a majority decision verdict.
