Who should Carl Frampton fight next, ponders John Dennen

IT feels like the masterful Cuban has been calling out Carl Frampton for years. In pure boxing terms, it’s a tremendous fight.

Few can match Guillermo Rigondeaux’s counter-punching ability but Frampton has real power and the Cuban has been put down before.

There are obstacles however. For a start Frampton has moved up to featherweight and he’s reached a new level of fame. His team will want major fights. Rigondeaux might not have the financial clout or profile now to tempt Frampton to take the risk.
