Big decision: Carl Frampton is weighing up his boxing future

Carl Frampton has confirmed that "initial talks" have been held with both Leo Santa Cruz and Oscar Valdez over the possibility of facing the Jackal in his next fight.

Speaking to BT Sport, Frampton said both fighters were open to the idea, although talks are yet to reach the negotiation stage.

Asked which one he would prefer to face, Frampton said, "Santa Cruz maybe because it would be the decider in a trilogy fight, but in the position I am at the minute I lost my last fight for a world title, I can't really be too picky and I'll get what's given to me.

"With Santa Cruz and Valdez, there haven't been negotiations as such but there have been initial talks and they've reached out, they're both potential fights so there are still options and we'll see what happens.

 

"Obviously I've got this court case coming up in May as well which I want to just put behind me and put to bed really and after that I'll start thinking about fighting again. If I do fight again it'll be summer time."

Frampton's courtroom showdown with ex-manager Barry McGuigan will take place in May of this year, with the Jackal suing McGuigan, his wife Sandra McGuigan and Cyclone Promotions (UK) Ltd, claiming a failure to pay purse money from his bouts.
