Frampton Confirms He Will Never Fight Conlan

Carl Frampton has made it clear that he will never fight his friend and fellow Belfast native, Michael Conlan.

Frampton wrote this week, “why certain parts of the media keep bringing it up is beyond me because it is quite obvious Mick and I are at two completely different stages of our careers, and secondly we’re mates, so when you put those two things together it just makes the whole suggestion absurd.

“Quite simply, once and for all, Mick and I will never fight and I hope this puts an end to all the silly talk and questions.”

Frampton said he and Conlan are “fed up” of having to answer the question.

He added: “Mick is a developing professional and I’m at a stage of my career where I’m looking to have world title fights because who knows how long I have left.”

Frampton is training for a fight an August 18th against Luke Jackson.

Frampton added: “There’s a lot that goes in to developing into a top professional and Mick is on his way to the top, but people need to get off his back and be a bit more patients because it doesn’t happen over night.”
