Carl Frampton To Remain Managed By Al Haymon Following McGuigan Split

While speculation is ongoing where two-weight world champion Carl Frampton will go next for his promoter his management will not be changing.

Recently Belfast’s most famed fighting son, two-weight division world champion Carl Frampton announced that he was parting ways professionally with long time mentor Barry McGuigan, his trainer and McGuigan’s son Shane McGuigan – as well as cutting ties with Cyclone Promotions which was run by members of Barry McGuigan’s family.

Attention has now turned to what promoter the in demand fighter will sign with next. 

At 30 years of age and having already achieved a lot, that choice will likely be the last promoter he works with from here on out for the rest of his professional boxing career as Frampton has mentioned he doesn’t want to box on past 34.

One thing that won’t be changing however is who manages him, Al Haymon.

We spoke with an executive at Haymon’s company today who told Boxing News and Views:

“As far as I know nothing has changed on the management side. Al (Haymon) still manages Carl.”

Frampton is now a free agent and in charge of his own destiny as regards picking what promoter who he will work with next. 

Some have suggested that he could make a return to old promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport in the UK – whom he started out with as a promoter at the beginning of his pro career.

Frampton now boxes in the featherweight division and holds a current professional boxing record of 23-1-14KO.

His last bout took place in January of this year when he suffered his first defeat as a pro to Leo Santa Cruz in their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
