Las Vegas – This month the new WBA rankings came out it debuted the former two-time/ two division world champion Carl Frampton (23-1-14 KO’s) at number 2 in the Super-Featherweight division.
WBA #1 contender Bryan Vasquez (35-2-19 KO’s) from Costa Rica said he is “Ready, willing and able to meet Carl Frampton this summer in Belfast Ireland at Windsor Park in either July or August.”
Vasquez “Let’s make this fight happen Frampton” stated two-time WBA world champion and WBA #1 contender. “We are the two highest ranking contenders by the WBA at 130lbs. We both want a shot at the current champion (Jezreel Corrales) who will be defending his title in July against a guy with a dozen losses. Let’s make this fight happen in Ireland!”
Bryan Vasquez is a two-time “Interim’ WBA World Champion has faced the likes of Javier Fortuna, Sergio Thompson, Jose Felix Jr and Takashi Uchiyama.
A Vasquez vs. Frampton is a very intriguing matchup, Vasquez will have the size and maybe power advantage over Frampton having fought as high as Lightweight, while Frampton who started his career at Super-Bantamweight will have the speed advantage over Vasquez.
If Cyclone Promotions and Team Frampton are looking for a dance partner I’m sure the Costa Rican native will have no problem obliging them in a fight that could possibly be a WBA “Eliminator’ with the winner earning the mandatory position and challenge for the WBA Championship next later this year.
