Frampton vs. Herring To Land in Late Summer or Early Fall

Carl Frampton will have to wait a little longer for his attempt to become a three division world champion, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

There was a date in June, in Belfast, being targeted for Frampton's challenge of WBO super featherweight world champion Jamel Herring.

Frampton, who captured world titles at super bantamweight and featherweight, will have to wait until the late summer or early fall to get the opportunity with Herring.

Frampton, 33-years-old, has been out of the ring since last November, when he dominated Tyler McCreary in Las Vegas.

Frank Warren, who along with Top Rank is the co-promoter of Frampton, is working on a new date for the fight, in Belfast.

“We were looking for June but that is not going to happen,” Warren told Standard Sport. “We will look to get it on for late summer or the early autumn now.”

And Warren is also working on a new date for Josh Taylor's defense of the WBA, IBF junior welterweight titles against mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong. The fight was originally scheduled for May 2 in Glasgow, and also postponed due to the pandemic.

“It’s the same situation for Josh, we have to wait to see what happens but that will probably be around the same time as well.”

The heavyweight bout between Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce was scheduled to take place this coming Saturday night. The fight has been pushed back to July 11.

If the July date comes under threat, Warren will not consider holding it behind closed doors.

“That doesn't fit the criteria for that fight,” Warren said of Dubois vs Joyce being held in an empty arena. “It was night-on sold out. You can imagine what the atmosphere would be like. That fight needs to feed off the fans on the night.”
