CARL FRAMPTON is planning an all-British world title showdown against IBF champ Josh Warrington – right after he’s knocked out Luke Jackson.
The Jackal is preparing for his homecoming fight on August 18 against at Windsor Park against Aussie Jackson.
But while not looking past the 33-year-old former Olympian, two-weight world champ Frampton has already planned his path that ends with some unfinished business against Leo Santa Cruz.
Frampton suffered the only defeat of his career in a rematch against the 29-year-old Mexican last year after winning the first fight.
Talking at an announcement to unveil his new clothing partner 11 Degrees, Frampton said: “I want to repay the fans and put on a show for them at Windsor Park by knocking Jackson out.
“I would have never imagined that I would be a big enough ticket seller to be able to fill an arena like Windsor Park or a football stadium.
“I want to go out and put on a show and repay my loyal fans for supporting me for so long.
“Jackson is someone who I’m expected to beat and the bookies have me a big favourite but I don’t pay too much attention to that.
“If he beats me, it changes his life forever and he becomes a big name in world boxing so it’s up to me not to allow that to happen.
“I believe I’m a level above him, if I go into the fight 100 per cent, I will beat him even if I go into the fight at 90 per cent I think I will beat him.
“I’ve fought at the very highest level of professional boxing and he hasn’t yet, he’s going to see a difference on the night.”

Frampton, 31, then has his eye on Leeds’ first ever boxing world champ Warrington – and is relishing the kind of atmosphere it will bring.
He said: “The plan is to beat Jackson convincingly and set up a fight with Warrington later this year.
“Josh is coming off the back of a great win at Elland Road against Lee Selby and has a huge support from Leeds.
“I think my fans are the best in the world though and they will prove that next month at Windsor Park. A fight between me and Josh will certainly be a fantastic match-up and a great atmosphere.”
Then will come his shot at redemption.
He added: “Obviously not looking past my fight against Jackson but the end goal is to recapture what is rightfully mine and take my belt back from Santa Cruz in the trilogy between us.
“That is the ultimate goal.”
