Carl Frampton next fight: ‘Jackal’ confirms summer return plans despite court date postponement


Carl Frampton next fight: ‘Jackal’ confirms summer return plans despite court date postponement

Carl Frampton insists he will return to the ring this summer, despite plans being disrupted by a court date postponement.

The 32-year-old had initially hoped to get his upcoming case against Cyclone Promotions/the McGuigans out of the way in May before then fighting in July/August.

Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton waged 12 rounds of war last year

However it was revealed last week that the hearing has been pushed back to September and so some speculated that this may complicate the ‘Jackal’s’ next fight ideas.

Writing in his Sunday Life column, Frampton clarified: “My court case with former manager Barry McGuigan and promotional outfit Cyclone Promotions has been put back to September, but that won’t stop me from fighting in the summer.

“I think some of my fans were worried that it would push my return to the ring back to maybe the end of the year, but as far as I’m concerned, there’s no stopping me.

“Everything happens for a reason and I’ll just focus on preparing for the opportunity that my team come up with for the summer.”

Oscar Valdez is the WBO featherweight world champion

Frampton has not fought since losing to IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington in December.

The Northern Irishman considered retirement after this defeat, but has vowed to continue fighting and inked a co-promotional agreement with Top Rank/ESPN in America.

He is now being lined up to face WBO featherweight king Oscar Valdez in the near future.
