Frampton: ‘the most powerful man in boxing’ can move me to the next level

CARL Frampton believes working ‘with the most powerful man in boxing’ will bring him to new fighting heights.

PBC boss Al Haymon will work as an advisor for the IBF super bantamweight champion of the World and will play a huge role in ‘The Jackal’ breaking America.

Frampton is still promoted by Cyclone Promotions but will work closely with the man know as the Czar of boxing.

Haymon works closely with a number of the Worlds most well known fighters including Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan, Adonis Stevenson, Adrien Broner, Robert Guerrero among others.
The American also runs PBC boxing, whose debut in prime time on NBC on March 7 became the most-watched boxing telecast since an Oscar De La Hoya card on Fox in 1998, averaging 3.4 million viewers and peaking at 4.2 million.

Working with Haymon, who promoted the Andy Lee vs Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin World title fight, should see the Belfast star fight on massive TV cards Stateside, thus increasing his profile.

The American also manages the likes of Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares making bouts with both possible. If the Barry McGuigan managed puncher keeps performing the move could see him move from World champion adored at home to global boxing superstar in a matter of fights.

Speaking on the agreement, Frampton said: “I am very happy to have signed with Al Haymon. Al Haymon has a formidable reputation in boxing and has been the catalyst to securing the biggest fights in recent years. This is an exciting stage of my career after winning my world title, and my team and I know that this relationship with Al Haymon will help take my career to the next level. I am looking forward to it.”
Frampton’s manager and former World Champion Barry McGuigan said: “We are delighted to add Al Haymon to the team. Al Haymon is the best at what he does, there is no question about this. Al works with many world class fighters in the super bantamweight and featherweight divisions, so there will be plenty of attractive fights for Carl in the coming years. Carl is moving towards the peak of his career and we believe this is the perfect time to strike up this partnership.”
