Former two division world champion Carl Frampton is hoping to become a beltholder in a third weight class before 2020 is finished.
Fighting for the first time since a decision loss to IBF world champion Josh Warrington back in December 2018, Frampton will collide on Saturday night with Tyler McCreary at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
The contest will be Frampton's official entrance in the super featherweight division.
Should everything go well, the 32-year-old Frampton wants to fight for a world title in 2020.
“I want a world title fight in my next fight,” Frampton told UTV.
“This fight is at 128lbs which is right in the middle of featherweight and super featherweight, so it gives me the option. Whatever comes up, I’m ready to fight any champion at super-featherweight, or featherweight, I’m happy to take it.”
In the main event of the card, former WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez will be making his debut at 130-pounds as well.
One of the fight calling out Frampton is WBO super featherweight champion Jamel Herring.
Both Frampton and Herring have promotional deals with Top Rank.
“There’s been a few guys mentioning my name which is good, I’m still a big fight for people,” Frampton said.
“It’ll still attract a good audience on TV and I can bring a few fans over as well so, super featherweight, featherweight world title next hopefully - I’ll fight any of them.”
In his last outing in Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand, Frampton lost a close twelve round decision in his rematch with Leo Santa Cruz. This past Saturday night, Santa Cruz made his own debut at super featherweight, as he captured the WBA "regular" title with a decision over Miguel Flores.
