With an impressive points win over Nonito Donaire, Carl Frampton now has a summer showdown at Windsor Park in his sights.
Frampton was punch perfect at the SSE Arena on Saturday night, boxing well with strong counter shots and eye-catching footwork.
Picking up the WBO Interim World Featherweight Title in the process, The Jackal could face Oscar Valdez next, or the winner of Lee Selby v Josh Warrington.
"There's a couple of options there. Obviously you've got Lee Selby and Josh Warrington on the 19th of May at Leeds United," explained promoter Frank Warren. "That's one option - the winner of that.
"The other thing is, it depends what the WBO do now, if they order Valdez to make his mandatory defence against Carl. We're not rushing. All we do know we're rushing in to is August. We'll be doing that fight with Carl and he'll be getting his dream to fight there."
Valdez has been the WBO Champion since July 2016 and has made four successful defences since, including wins over Scott Quigg and Genesis Servania.
"He broke his jaw in his last fight and it depends if he's going to be ready or not. If it's ordered we're going to be pushing for that.
"I'm hearing through the grapevine he may even move up a weight. If he moves up a weight, Carl gets put in as Champion straight away. Whatever happens, Valdez has no option - he's got to fight this man here. It makes sense to get it on over here," added Warren.
Frampton admitted that he doesn't mind who he shares a ring with in August, but believes a clash with Valdez would entertain the Belfast fans.
"Terrific fighter, good puncher, ferocious, good style, fan-friendly, exciting. But he's very hittable and I think I could out-box him, but it would be a fantastic fight," said the 31-year-old.
