Former world champion Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton 26-2 (15) is looking to bounce back from his loss to IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington 28-0 (6) last December by targeting two of the biggest names in the division.

“I could toss a coin between Leo Santa Cruz and Oscar Valdez,” Frampton said to the Belfast News Letter. “I lost my last fight so I’m not in a position to make too many demands but if you gave me a 50p, I’d say heads Santa Cruz and tails Valdez.

“It doesn’t matter to me because they’re both two good, tough fights. I also believe they’re both winnable fights, though.”

The 31-year-old from Belfast in Northern Ireland was comfortably outboxed by Leeds’ Warrington at Manchester Arena two months ago, dropping a 12-round decision by scores of 113-116, 112-16 and 112-116. But Frampton isn’t giving up on securing more big fights in the future.

“I’m still in the same position as I was the last time I spoke about this – I want to be in big fights and I want to fight for world titles,” Frampton continued.

“The Santa Cruz and Valdez fights have been talked about and we’ll see. With Santa Cruz and Valdez, there haven’t been negotiations as such but there have been initial talks and they’ve reached out, they’re both potential fights so there are still options and we’ll see what happens.”

With Warrington set to defend his IBF world championship against Kid Galahad, Frampton says he will be watching the fight with interest.

“I want to fight world champions so if Kid Galahad beats Josh Warrington, I’ll happily fight him but really, I hope he gets smashed to bits. Galahad has fought nobody really and has never been that impressive in his fights so far as far as I am concerned,” he told MTK Global.
