Frampton: Frank Warren Deal is Best Chance To Get Massive Fights

Carl Frampton officially confirmed a story first reported by Shaun Brown of, revealing that he indeed signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren, which means the Jackal will fight on BT Sport and BoxNation - both of which are available outlets for Warren promoted fighters.

The Northern-Ireland fighter, who held two world-titles in two different weight classes, recently split with longtime promoter/manager Barry McGuigan after an underwhelming year. And also split with head trainer Shane McGuigan (who is Barry's son) and hired Jamie Moore.

Frampton suffered his first defeat as a professional back in January after losing his WBA world featherweight title to Leo Santa Cruz in their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The 30-year-old then failed to make weight in his WBC featherweight eliminator fight against Andres Gutierrez in July, which was eventually called off after the Mexican picked up injuries when he slipped in the shower the night before the bout.

Frampton, who is advised by Al Haymon in the United States, views the agreement with Warren as the perfect vehicle to secure some of the biggest fights around his weight division.

 "This is a deal I believe will give me the best chance to have massive fights that I crave and I have been guaranteed that I will be fighting at Windsor Park next summer," Frampton wrote in the Sunday Life.

"I felt that the overall package that Frank Warren and BT Sport were offering me was the deciding factor.

"I'm desperate to kick on and have a fight before Christmas and I can confirm that I will be fighting in Belfast.

"My homecoming ended up being a mess in July when Andres Guttierrez fell in the shower after I hadn't made the 9st featherweight limit.

"But now I suppose it's the homecoming 2.0 and I'll have more details about the deal later this week at a press conference."

I like Frampton. He's a great boxer and I enjoyed his fight with Quigg and felt he did a great job with Santa Cruz in their first bout. I'd like to see the trilogy and hopefully gets some big fights…

Whos the best Hungarian featherweight then

He will beat some B-level guy, make some more money, lose another big fight (if Warren does manage to get one for him) and fade out.
