Carl Frampton says he would be”very tempted” to struggle again if he had been offered either a re match with Josh Warrington or a bout with WBA featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz.
Warrington conquered Frampton to maintain his IBF belt at Manchester Arena on 22 December.
“that I wouldn’t go back again to lower conflicts,” he also added.
After the conquer the former two-weight world winner said he wouldn’t rush into a decision over his future, but suggested that retirement has been a possibility.
Englishman Warrington said he would prefer to take his belt into the united states and then unify the division next year.
The bout at Manchester was widely praised among the most exciting competitions of this season, together with Warrington beginning in a stunning pace to take control of the struggle in the opening two rounds.
“I give a lot of credit to Warrington and his team because they got it right and at the night that which fell into place for them.
“But, if I had a rematch with Warrington I believe I would be at him – if I stuck into my game plan.”
A third struggle with Santa Cruz has been a longstanding desire of the Belfast fighter, that beat the Mexican at their very first encounter in 20-16 before Santa Cruz exacted his revenge at Las Vegas in early 2017.
