Frampton (24-1, 14 KOs), fighting at home in Belfast, is a former World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Featherweight Champion.
 
"To have a guy like Nonito Donaire coming to Belfast to fight me almost feels like an honor," Frampton said. "In terms of accolades, he's accomplished more than anyone I've fought, including Leo Santa Cruz. He's a future Hall of Famer and hopefully I can put my name in that bracket one day.

"Some people want the easiest fight, but that's not me, and I don't think that's Nonito either. I'm experienced enough to know that I need to be in fights that excite me and get me nervous. I think the crowd adds something to my performance. There isn't an atmosphere like the SSR Arena anywhere in the world!
 
"There is a lot more to Donaire than just a left hook. To say that is disrespectful. He's also got a brilliant right hand. I have a lot of respect for Nonito, he's a quality fighter."
 
Philippines-native Donaire, who lives in San Leandro, California, is a seven-time, four-division world champion, who is 10-0 in fights held outside of the United States.
 
"Me and my wife feel like we are married to Carl," Donaire commented. "We wake up, we see Carl. We go to bed, we see Carl. He's a great fighter.

This is so one-sided, Donaire should be applying pressure?

Donaire to announce retirement post fight. Hard to watch now. A stinker.

Good round 5 - 2. Looked like Framps was going to fall head first through the ropes after that uppercut.

4 - 2 boringass fight. Frampton could impose himself more but he's happy being cautious.
