Frampton was in devastating form as he produced a stunning performance in claiming a fifth round stoppage win over Avalos, and ultimately he delivered on his promise of putting on a show for his fans in Belfast.
With Scott Quigg ringside, the two rivals were brought together after the fight and discussed the potential of a showdown in the summer.
Negotiations between the two parties have been on-going for some time, but both fighters made it clear that they are willing to make it happen but both couldn’t help but have a dig too.
“I would love it, I think Scott would too,” Frampton said after the fight, Sky Sports reported.
“A summer showdown between the two of us is a huge fight. But Scott needs to remember who the real world champion is.
“I would leave Belfast if I had to, maybe somewhere neutral, it doesn’t matter to me.
“It’s the biggest fight in the UK at the minute – Amir Khan v Kell Brook possibly – but this one has been brewing a lot longer. It’s a huge domestic showdown.”
Quigg hasn’t fought since injuring his hand in November, but after returning to training he is confident that he will be able to step back in the ring at the end of May.
However, he was keen to set the record straight that both fighters make the bout huge with their respective fanbases and described Frampton’s explosive performance as merely “good”.
