Carl Frampton Aims To Be Back End of July or Early August

Former two division champion Carl Frampton (27-2, 15 KOs) is hoping to be back in the ring.

Frampton was scheduled to go for his third world title, when he was set to challenge WBO super featherweight world champion Jamel Herring in Windsor on June 13.

The fight was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Herring has already been scheduled for a stay-busy title defense against Puerto Rico's Jonathan Oquendo. The fight is scheduled for July 2nd at a Ballroom located at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In the United States, boxing is ready to return starting in June, with boxing in the UK expected to resume in July.

Frampton has discussed his return with his team and he was advised that a date in late July or early August is very possible.

“Boxing is on the way back – and finally I can crank up my training for a fight this summer,” Frampton said in his popular Sunday Life column.

“From what I’ve been told, I could well be back in the ring at the end of July or early August. A date and a venue still need to be confirmed, but I know somewhere in the UK is expected to stage the bill.

“The latest news from the States is that Las Vegas will be having a couple of shows a week starting on June 9 at the MGM Grand. Of course all of these shows will be behind closed doors and while we would all prefer fans to be there, it is something that we just have to get used to.”
