Frank Warren on Wilder-Fury II, Frampton's Future, Warrington

By Frank Warren

I WAS KEPT busy last week with a few key meetings that reached the public domain and the outcome of these was all positive all we continue to build for a big 2019.

I had a good chat with Carl Frampton and the good news is that he indicated his desire to carry on boxing and hopefully we will be in a position sometime this week to firm up what the future holds for him.

To my mind, Carl has got plenty left in the tank and shouldn’t have judged himself harshly after coming up against an inspired Josh Warrington in December.

He rightly wants the big fights now and is deserving of them. We will get to work on making them happen for him, starting around June time.

I also met up with Josh to plan his next moves and obviously his IBF mandatory fight against Kid Galahad is currently out to purse bids. We do, however, have another offer on the table that we will make a decision on this week.

On the subject of IBF business, I do find it staggering that they have moved the goalposts, all of a sudden, regarding purse splits to 65-35 and I struggle to fathom the justification.

It is something we will be challenging because when we applied for the exception of Josh to fight Carl and agreed to the subsequent mandatory, the rule at the time was 75-25 and we based our decisions on that split.

Tyson Fury was my other date for the week and the good news for the fans is that things will start to happen fairly quickly now. Deontay Wilder has made it clear who he wants next, as has Tyson, so that is what we are all working hard towards.
