Carl Frampton vs. Josh Warrington Set Up For Year-End Clash

By Elliot Foster

Carl Frampton talked up a potential world title challenge against Josh Warrington in the wake of his latest win.

The WBO interim featherweight champion retained his crown with a ninth-round retirement of previously undefeated Australian Luke Jackson at Windsor Park.

Frampton, the Ulsterman who is a former WBA Super world featherweight champion and a former unified IBF and WBA super-bantamweight champion, stopped Jackson in front of a delirious home crowd on Saturday night, exclusively live on BT Sport.


And after his win, Frampton was greeted in the ring by IBF featherweight world champion Warrington, who dethroned Lee Selby at Leeds United’s Elland Road stadium back in May.

“This was unreal," Frampton said afterwards. "The atmosphere from the Belfast fans was something special, the crowd was fantastic and they made my dream come true. It was unbelievable from start to finish."

Both fighters are under the promotional banner of Frank Warren, which makes the fight easy to make, and Boxing Scene understands that the fight is being targeted for a November date, with both fighters feeling that it’s only right that it happens on neutral ground.

The 21,000-seat Manchester Arena is the favourite to host the clash, but Warren is expected to confirm the fight in due course.

Warrington, who watched Frampton from ringside, added: "He performed well. He looked nice and relaxed in there and I am looking to get the fight.

"I have got a lot of respect for him but this is boxing and you want to fight the best."
