With Josh Warrington hoping to secure a World Title shot if he beats Dennis Ceylan on October 21st, he has earmarked new stablemate Carl Frampton as a potential foe.
Frampton, a former two-weight World Champion, recently signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren and is aiming to become a Featherweight World Champion once again next year after he makes his Belfast homecoming on November 18th.
"It is a massive signing for Frank getting Carl on board," Warrington told BoxNation. "Carl is a brilliant fighter, with worldwide recognition, a huge fanbase and has won World Titles at two weight divisions. He has got a lot of pedigree behind him and when we talk about having big stadium fights, you want to be getting in with someone like Carl Frampton, who has got that appeal."
Warrington and Frampton both have dreams of headlining in a stadium. Warrington has yearned for a huge Elland Road night, while the Northern Irishman wants to fight at Windsor Park, the National Football Stadium in Northern Ireland.
“Not only that, he is a good fighter and if me and him were to clash it would be a very entertaining fight," he stated.
“If he can pick up a title from one governing body and I pick up the IBF it would be a unification fight to sell out Elland Road or Windsor Park. We’ve both got a big fanbase so there are all the ingredients for a massive fight."
Frampton lost his WBA belt in January after losing to Leo Santa Cruz in Las Vegas, and he has talked a third bout with the Mexican in or an exciting match-up with WBO titlist Oscar Valdez.
Meanwhile Warrington is one victory away from a chance at winning Lee Selby's IBF Title.
“With us being under the same umbrella there would be no problems like with dual promotions where there can be fall outs over contracts," argued Warrington.
“He is a genuine lad and when you get characters like Carl, who is pretty straightforward and says it how it is, you don’t get any of the bullsh*t."
