Thoughts?

Well it's a UK based station so good on that front but is W***** going to get him the big fights he wants ?

As much as we mock him Eddie is the best UK promoter

Interesting.....

It seems the personal animosity between him and Hearn has played into this. Not sure the path that he intends to take with W***** and what big fights he feels can be made. Seemed more straight forward with Matchroom, but he'll be on BT and boxnation and he's got a big profile so we'll see what happens.

Agree with the above post, I think W***** will look to make a PPV fighter after an initial comeback fight, even with his record surely W***** can't mess up ticket sales for Frampton. A homecoming fight fair enough but I hope we see Frampton in big fights, I'm not so sure W***** will deliver, we will see.

Didn't see that coming.

W***** hasn't been a force in years I don't see the attraction. Surely I move stateside with arum/oscar might of been better.

Saying that don't know the lads personal circumstances . I presume there's a shed load of reasons

Seeing how he always bangs on about fighting at Windsor Park I thought he’d have been straight with Hearn. Mention of a stadium gets Eddie going full on Pavlov’s dog.

I'd of thought the  paddys would lap up him fighting you in there so hear a not needed  ;) as
Long as you don't have a shower night before it'll be a full house.

He's Hatton like on the support front.

I think Framptons problem is his body he's struggling with weight yet might be two small to move up again he's stocky in height. I think his mind to switch trainer was made when he failed to make weight for his fight last time out. He is a main player in the lower weight levels for him to miss weight is a major error in camp and training and could have cost him in the fight.

It will be interesting to watch his career now I have always felt ( personal opinion ) fighters who fight at the lower weights seem to peak earlier and at 30 he might not have many big fights left.

It seems every move Frampton makes is money oriantated....shame W***** will likely rob him Blind.

Cyclone was Barry, his wife, his daughter, his two sons , his dog, his cat, his goldfish.

No opponent announced for Frampton but Ancjas v Conlan on the undercard should be a cracker.

Frampton got to live in Barrys shadow though. Good deal that

Anyone think Frampton will have a long WBO reign of imported cheap bums ?

Valdez is the current WBO champ and I can't see W***** fronting the cash to get him over.  Frampton would have to travel to get a shot and then it would be some task for him to win it.

I'm surprised that they didn't go straight after Selby as his career is going nowhere fast and would probably be grateful for a payday.

Risky move considering the rumoured reason he split with Cyclone was that he'd been done out of money for previous fights.

And when was last time W***** put on a stadium show, Haye-Chisora in 2012?

Obviously he'll be no.1 fighter in W*****'s stable and BT Sport will give him good promotion but still not sure it's the best move.

It's stupid move.

Sky has their Box Office, whereas BT has nothing.

Frampton was saying that Eddie / Sky have too many big stars to keep happy, and he'd be BT's no1.

Sorry Carl but you aint a big star.

I think it is a risky move but could pay off long term

When Eddie first started he only really had Kell brook who was fighting at leisure centres in Sheffield. And then he got others defecting one after one.

Frampton is probably the biggest ticket seller in British boxing now bar aj.

I think the success here depends on how much money bt are willing to throw at boxing.

Both Quigg and Selby are under matchroom and neither have much to get excited about in a long time. If their career trajectory impacted on his decision then it may not be a bad decision at all.

Been wondering just what's happening to quigg as of late .

I think he’s fighting on a card in Monaco in November

Can't imagine he's bursting with enthusiasm for that. Other than obviously Frampton and Martinez quiggs opponents under matchroom have been pretty dire.

Hearn should be able to make Quigg vs Selby over dinner if he really wanted too. Unless one of them really doesn't fancy it I've no idea why he hasn't. Neither look even close to getting a bigger fight anytime soon and now Carl is with Frank it's unlikely either will face him.


People on here slated cyclone but what they achieved with Frampton is far better than anything matchroom has done for Lee and Scott. Lee just gets stuck on shitty PPV cards, and Scott on crappy cards in general.

I thought Selby’s Matchroom contract had expired.
