Frampton: If We Both Win, Pretty Sure Herring Fight Will Happen

As previously reported, former two division world champion Carl Frampton is looking to return to the ring in last July or early August.

Frampton was booked to challenge for his third world title last this month, by taking on WBO super featherweight world champion Jamel Herring.

The fight was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Herring is already heading to a stay busy bout against Jonathan Oquendo on July 2nd, as part of Top Rank's series of shows in Las Vegas.

Frampton, who last saw action in December, is still waiting for his date and opponent. The event will take place behind closed doors.

"I haven't had a concrete date yet, or an opponent, but I've been told to get ready for a fight so that is what I am doing," said Frampton to BBC Sport.

"I boxed at a reasonably high level as an amateur, travelling the world and I wasn't fighting in front of many people. It is something that I am half used to. It's going to be a strange feeling not having anyone there. I suppose you don't spar in front of many people and you're always trying to get one over on your sparring partner."

Frampton believes the fight with Herring will still happen, provided they both win their upcoming fights.

"It's still the fight that I want," said Frampton. "If we both win our next fights then I'm pretty sure it will go ahead.

"Where it will be or when it will be I'm not so sure. He still seems keen. He keeps mentioning my name and talks about wanting to fight me, and I want the chance to become a three-weight world champion.

"It's a case of one fight at a time in this game and at this stage of my career, but I feel like the fight with Jamel will happen at some point."

The longer frampton stays away from the likes of herring and berchelt the better for him.
