  • Frampton could earn himself another world-title shot with a win over Donaire

Looks like WBO featherweight champion Carl Frampton is headed toward a much-anticipated scrap at Windsor Park this August.

"I'd love Valdez. Selby or Warrington - either of them".

Frampton - previously the WBA featherweight and super bantamweight champion - is now in line to face Mexico's Oscar Valdez, who faces a mandatory defence of his WBO belt.

"Leo Santa Cuz isn't going to happen because he's fighting Abner Mares in June".

"I want a world title and that's it".

But by coming out on top by a margin of 117-111 on all three judges' scorecards, the 31-year-old Frampton kept himself on course for a bout with the victor of next month's International Boxing Federation title fight between Lee Selby and Josh Warrington.

While on paper you'd have to say the more competitive fight to watch this weekend is Nonito Donaire and Carl Frampton, it can not be denied that Khan is the biggest star fighting this weekend.

Wizards look to even series with Game 4 in DC
And the Raptors averaged 122 points per game in winning the series' first two games, shooting over 50 percent in each contest. Kyle Lowry added 19 points, eight assists and three steals: he also was called for a flagrant foul in the third quarter .

"There is only one thing on my mind at the moment - a world title fight at Windsor Park and I can't wait to get there".

"We've had plenty of time to gain weight the right way, and I'm very confident of being a full featherweight and I'm very comfortable sparring bigger guys", Donaire said. It was a masterclass at times. "If I could be in the position he was in at 70-years-old, when a man puts his son on my lap for a photograph, that would make me proud".

Frampton, who split from promoter Barry McGuigan previous year, before ditching Shane McGuigan, Barry's son, as his trainer, added: "In the 11th round I was definitely hurt but I survived it and that's what champions do". When it got close I needed to use my straighten which I did.

"I knew he was risky and my plan, although it was simple, it worked to a T". I didn't feel exhausted at all.

Today's fight represents Frampton's second with new trainer Jamie Moore and new promoter Frank Warren, who considers Donaire the finest fighter he has brought to the United Kingdom since Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux in 2016.

Frampton was quicker and more savvy, but Donaire, to his credit, remained in the hunt and in the 11th landed some good shots.
