Who should Carl Frampton fight next, ponders John Dennen
  1. GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX

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.
