Frampton’s lawyer confirmed plans to counter sue Cyclone in their own message to the press on Sunday and representatives for Blain McGuigan, who is named in the original letter, have stated the following:
For some weeks now, Cyclone Promotions has been attempting to mediate a settlement with Carl Frampton and his representatives.
This mediation was ended by Carl Frampton’s solicitors when a settlement could not be reached. The Company, therefore, lodged a claim against Carl Frampton relating to his breach of the promotional contract entered into with Cyclone Promotions at the High Court.
Cyclone Promotions is merely seeking a fair and equitable resolution to this contract dispute with Carl Frampton. The courts will now decide on the matter and since our claim marks the start of that process, it will therefore not be appropriate to make any further statement.
Cyclone Promotions will be making no further comment.
As things begin to get a somewhat messy between the McGuigans and Frampton, the ex-world champion has jetted off to Kenya on a charity mission with his wife.
