After splitting with Barry McGuigan and Cyclone Promotion, we were all pondering just who would promote Carl Frampton.

Some suspected that despite the bad blood between them, Frampton might hook up with Eddie Hearn, but that, we can now confirm, is not going to happen.

Instead, Carl Frampton has announced that Frank Warren will be his new peomoter and their aim is to fight, in Belfast before Christmas.

Talking about reaching his decision, Frampton had this to say to the media,

‘I had interest from America and the UK but it really came down to two very similar offers from Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren.

‘I’m desperate to kick on and have a fight before Christmas and I can confirm I will be fighting in Belfast.

‘After some hard thinking I felt the overall package that Frank Warren and BT Sport were offering me was the deciding factor. Frank’s knowledge of boxing is second to none.

‘This is a deal that I believe will get me the best chance of having the massive fights that I crave and I have been guaranteed that I will be fighting at Windsor Park next summer.’

It?ll be good to see Carl back in the ring in December as he embarks on a trek to win a world title again.
