Frampton Hopes To Get Valdez, Selby or Warrington Next

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARL FRAMPTON admitted he cannot wait to fight at Windsor Park in August.

The featherweight star put in a stunning display to outbox former four-weight world champion Nonito Donaire in Belfast last night.

Now he is eyeing up a world title shot in the summer at the home of his beloved Northern Ireland.

Frampton is set to meet either WBO champion Oscar Valdez or the winner of the clash between IBF title holder Lee Selby against Josh Warrington.

“It’s going to be hard to describe, I can’t wait,” Frampton said after his 25 career win. “I’m excited about it already and I don’t even know my opponent is.

“Valdez, I’d love Valdez, Selby, Warrington - I’d love any of those.

“Leo Santa Cuz isn’t going to happen because he’s fighting Abner Mares in June. Listen, I want a world title and that’s it.”

Former two-weight world champion Frampton put in an almost punch perfect display as he cutely outsmarted Filipino puncher Donaire at the SSE Arena.

The sharp counter right hands from Frampton did most of the damage while his fast footwork got him out of danger.

Donaire did hurt the hometown favourite in the 11 round but by then Frampton had the fight won and the judges all gave it to him 117-111.

He said: “It showed a different side to me.

“I’m a boxer and I can box if I want to. I’ve got a whole lot of sides to my game and I think I showed that. It was a masterclass at times. 

“I had a simple game plan, there was nothing too scientific about it - use my jab from the outside and when I got close, to stay close.

“I knew I was the stronger man and I started to bully him a bit on the inside.

“It was simple boxing, it was a jab on the outside and when I got close to stay close and use my physical presence. And that was it.

“I knew he was dangerous and my plan, although it was simple, it worked to a T.

“I thought it was a pretty decent performance.

“I just felt so fresh. I didn’t feel tired at all. It was the best camp I’ve ever had and the most scientific approach. That’s credit to my trainer Jamie Moore and everyone.”

Watching Frampton fights can be a long slog now. I can't see him ever stopping an elite opponent with this catious crazy wide stance and flicking jab style. Donaire should have been dealt with inside 6 rounds. He was there…

Frampton's #3 with the WBC, so why not target Gary Russell Jnr!

[QUOTE=Cantona;18698244]Me too I like Selby he's underrated as a boxer and Frampton has a bit of everything. I don't see any problem for Selby dealing with Warrington so hopefully it comes next.[/QUOTE] Yeh I rate selby as one of best…
