FORMER two-weight world champion Carl Frampton has been given a lofty ranking at super-featherweight by the WBA as he prepares to announce his next fight.

‘The Jackal’ became the first Northern Irish two-weight world champion last year when he dethroned WBA featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz, having previously won the IBF and WBA titles at super-bantamweight.

Santa Cruz defeated Frampton in their Las Vegas rematch in January, and Carl is looking to have his next outing this summer in Belfast. He has not yet announced who he will be fighting, but the WBA have installed him at No 2 in their super-featherweight rankings.
