POLL: Who do you want Carl Frampton to fight next?

The interest and intrigue surrounding the identity of Carl Frampton’s next opponent has reached fever pitch, with Irish and world boxing fans desperate to find out who ‘The Jackal’ will face next.

The Belfast featherweight has confirmed that his team are in talks with “four or five” major names for a homecoming clash at Windsor Park.

Two of these names we know are WBA champion Leo Santa Cruz and IBF champion Lee Selby. Below we have created a poll for fans to express their preference between these two and a number of other fighters at the weight which seem to be feasible options.

Cast your votes!

*Frampton has confirmed that Scott Quigg is not one of these “four or five” due to a lack of personal and fan interest, however he is included in the above poll to gauge what the fan interest actually is.

**Names excluded from the poll include Guillermo Rigondeaux (fights at a different weight and has a bout scheduled in May), Gary Russell Jr (fight scheduled in May), and Oscar Valdez (fight scheduled in April and boxes under a rival promoter).
