DESPITE talk of him fighting Oscar Valdez, it would appear Carl Frampton’s next shot at a world title will come against WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring, with whom he reportedly has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to fight next year.

Frampton and Valdez, the former WBO featherweight champion, have been linked for some time now and were expected to fight towards the end of 2019 only for a couple of things to scupper the plan.

First, Valdez signalled his intention to leave featherweight and fight as a super-featherweight, which he does for the first time against Andres Gutierrez on November 30, and then Frampton suffered a freak injury the day before he was due to box Emmanuel Dominguez in August, which set him back a few months.
