JAMIE SANIGAR, manager of IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby, is confident a massive unification fight with WBA champion Carl Frampton can happen, though it may have to wait until next year.

Frampton became a two-weight world champion when he outpointed Leo Santa Cruz in New York last weekend (July 30) and attention immediately turned to who the Ulsterman could face next.

Selby, who was ringside at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, is eager to meet the Ulsterman in the ring but may have to wait his turn.
