Carl Frampton splits from McGuigan and Cyclone Promotions and the two-weight world champion outlines his reasons.

Rumblings that all was not well had been coming for sometime behind the scenes but now the news has been made official today that Carl Frampton has parted way professionally with Cyclone Promotions and his mentor Barry McGuigan.

There had been leaks in recent weeks following a fight for Frampton that fell out for the Belfast man at the last minute that all was not well.

Carl Frampton Splits From McGuigan

It is unclear from the above if Frampton will retain the services of trainer Shane McGuigan, son of Barry McGuigan, whom Frampton has won his world titles in multiple weight classes with.

An insider with knowledge of the situation a few weeks back told Boxing News and Views he expects Frampton to work more closely with US boxing manager and power broker Al Haymon now.

If this is the case, perhaps a move to the US might be on the cards for Frampton. Particularly with a number of bouts available to him overseas.

If this does happen, it will be interesting to see what he does as regards his trainer.
