Former world champion Barry McGuigan is understood to be set to continue as Frampton’s manager but the North Irishman will now be expected to feature in the ‘Premier Boxing Champions’ cards moving forward.
The IBF super-bantamweight champion confirmed the news on Twitter, with McGuigan also adding that he was delighted to have “teamed up with the biggest name in boxing globally”.
There is no news on when ‘the Jackal’ will return to the ring, although this move does open up doors to several big fights with the likes of Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares who are both signed up with Haymon too.
Meanwhile, Frampton joins a huge stable that is continuing to grow under the adviser, and he will now look forward to building his profile Stateside and securing the biggest fights possible in the division.
In contrast, it remains to be seen what effect this has on a possible British showdown with Scott Quigg, with the pair previously in negotiations over a bout this summer.
While they were unable to reach an agreement this time round, promoter Eddie Hearn suggested on Twitter that his move to link up with Haymon could potentially make it easier to make the fight.
Hearn has worked with Haymon to make various fights in recent months, and their partnership could in turn lead to them having further success particularly in this situation if all parties are ready to return to the table and start talks again.
