Photos: Frampton, Donaire Prepare For Fireworks in Belfast

Carl Frampton was full of sound and fury at the weigh-in for Saturday’s colossal clash with five-weight world champion Nonito Donaire in Belfast.
 
‘The Jackal’ looked sensational on the scales as he clocked 125.3-pounds and then seized another opportunity to shine when a microphone malfunctioned. Shouting out the reading to the crowd himself, the hundreds who had packed the Europa Hotel’s ballroom roared back.
 
Donaire was also comfortably inside the featherweight limit at 125.8-pounds but despite the Filipino ingratiating himself to the locals at Thursday’s public workout, the time for light-hearted hospitality is giving way to gravitas.

While retaining graciousness and voicing his respect for Donaire’s illustrious achievements at every opportunity, Frampton has exuded a calm seriousness all week as he prepares to secure another world title shot with a career-best performance.

There were words between the rivals in one of the undercard’s standout fights as super-lightweights Tyrone McKenna and Anto Upton exchanged pleasantries.

McKenna said afterwards: “He put on his earphones so he couldn’t hear me but I was reminding him that he's only had four weeks to train for facing me and that’s not enough."

Upton responded: “I didn't hear anything butt if that’s what he’s going off to give himself confidence, I don’t care. I do my talking in the ring and this time the conversation is going to be short and sweet."
 
All MTK Global fighters were successful in making their weigh-in targets as McKenna, Upton, Conrad Cummings, Luke Keeler, David Oliver Joyce, Lewis Crocker, Steven Ward, Sam Maxwell, Marco McCullough, Tyrone McCullagh, Troy Williamson and Alex Dickinson clocked in.

Honestly, Donaire looks in as good of shape as ever. This fight can turn into a bore though if Donaire goes the counter puncher route. Frampton has already acknowledged Donaire's power over and over and will be crazy careful leaving…
