Frampton – New Opponent Named

And it is a tough one!

When it was announced that the rising Belfast super-bantamweight Carl Frampton was on the lookout for a new opponent for the Frank Warren promotion on the 20th July, at Wembley Arena, I said I hoped that the twenty-six year old would be given an opponent deserving of the occasion.

I had these fears that any last-ditch opponent would be nothing more than a journeyman. Thankfully I’ve been proved right!

It has been announced that Frampton has been matched with a very creditable opponent in the Nicaraguan fighter Everth Briceno. At thirty-five years of age Briceno brings a wealth of experience to the ring having won 35 of his 45 contests with 26 of his wins coming by way of a stoppage.

His class is emphasized though by the fact that he has twice challenged for the WBO super-flyweight title, a fact not lost on Frampton who is quoted in the media as having remarked,

“Everth Briceno is a great fighter – the guy has fought for a world title on two separate occasions.”

“I am in the best shape of my life right now. I am improving in training every day, sparring great, and I’m looking forward to showcasing my skills at Wembley.”


The contest, as we’ve already mentioned as being on the 20th July at Wembley Arena, will be the first time that Frampton has appeared as a boxer under the Warren promotions banner having split from the Eddie Hearn matchroom stable.

As usual we expect the familiar face of Barry McGuigan to be in the corner guiding young Carl in what will be the first of four fights shown on Frank Warren’s BoxNation TV channel. A convincing win over Everth Briceno will go a long way to seeing those dreams of fighting for a world title, by the third of his four fight contract, materialize.

July 20th, with Dereck Chisora topping the bill against the unbeaten American heavyweight, Malik Scott, threatens to be an engaging night for us pugilist fans.
