Frank Warren Backs Carl Frampton To Win World Title in 2020

By Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

Carl Frampton is back in training and ready to become a world champion again in 2020.

The Belfast fighter is putting a nightmare 12 months behind him and will show he is still a world class fighter over the next year.

Frampton hopes to get back to winning ways in the fight capital of the world when he returns to the ring on November 30 in Las Vegas.

The opponent has not been confirmed yet but it will be someone who will test the Northern Irishman while putting him in contention for world honours again.

Frampton should have been back in the ring by now but he suffered a freak hand injury when a concrete pillar dropped on his hand just days before his planned comeback in August.

It’s almost 10 months since his Christmas cracker with IBF champion Josh Warrington.

He may have lost that night but he showed what a warrior he is and as soon as he told me he wanted to fight on I knew the former super-bantamweight and featherweight champion could win another world title.

Now he can prove that in 2020 with the help of us, Top Rank and ESPN.

Speaking of future world champions, how good did Daniel Dubois look last week when he dismantled Ebenezer Tetteh in a round?

There have been plenty of performances at the Royal Albert Hall and that was right up there with the best.

It even caught the eye of WBC champion Deontay Wilder who was speaking highly of Dubois this week.

It’s not often the American gives out praise to other heavyweights so Dubois must really impress him.

Who knows, they could one day share a ring too.

Frampton hasn t looked good since Gonzalez knocked him down. It seems like he took the spring out of Frampton's stride and it's getting worse. Carl still has his skills, but his go two's are gone.

He can do something at 130 now that Tank is gone! Gary Russell should move up cuz everyone ducked him at 126

Hasn't looked increasingly shot since Leo 2. He fought a much bigger man in Garcia, and outclassed him imo. A blown up Nonito (Grated he was blown up, but still very skillful) And Jackson shouldn't have been anywhere near him…

Frampton was a great fighter before the rematch with Leo, since then he has looked increasingly shot. If you consider them legit world titles, WBA "regular" or IBO are probably the limit of what he can achieve a this point…
