Frank Warren ready to deliver Carl Frampton history with Jamel Herring plan

Carl Frampton has already achieved one dream with us and that was fighting at Windsor Park.

But now we are all about delivering the Belfast fighter some history by giving him the chance to become Ireland’s first three-weight world champion.

The plan was in place for him to face WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring before the coronavirus lockdown struck.

Now Herring has been struck down with the virus itself which has hit his summer plans.

But Frampton has been keeping busy training at home in Belfast and now in Manchester with coach Jamie Moore.

So we are going to give him an outing on our next show at BT Sport Studios on August 15.

The Northern Irishman takes on Vahram Vardanyan and he will have to be switched on to ensure it is not lights out on his world title shot.

Vardanyan is a wild and big puncher who will be looking to be a nightmare for Frampton.

But it will be a good fight to keep the ring rust off for the Belfast man and also test out his hands after he had them operated on at the end of last year.

It will then set up the fight with Herring which will hopefully happen before the end of the year.

Also on the card in two weeks is Frampton’s fellow Belfast man Michael Conlan and he takes on Sofiane Takoucht.

The Frenchman was last on these shores to face Josh Warrington for the IBF featherweight title so it will be good to see if Conlan can put on a show against him.

And also keep an eye out for Archie Sharp who is our 18-0 rising star at super-featherweight and takes on Jeff Ofori.

He wants to face Frampton for the WBO title and the two of them will be staying in the same hotel all week so I’m sure he will let him know all about that.

Watch Frampton v Vardanyan live on BT Sport on Saturday August 15.
