In his prime he collected the IBF world flyweight title and engaged in ring wars with the likes of Fidel Bassa, Jacob Matlala and Duke McKenzie. Now Dave ‘Boy’ McAuley reckons that Carl Frampton can follow in his footsteps and bring a world crown home on September 6.
Former European middleweight champion and world title challenger Matthew Macklin has endorsed Carl Frampton’s campaign to win the IBF super-bantamweight belt in September. Macklin is spearheading Matchroom’s plans to bring big time boxing to Dublin on August 30 and has half an eye on a money-spinning showdown with Irish rival Andy Lee later this year. Speaking at the Holiday Inn last month the 32-year-old revealed that he fancies Carl Frampton’s chances of landing a global strap at the Titanic Quarter.
