Frampton: Warrington Fight Will Excite, Won't Be Like Quigg Bout

CARL FRAMPTON has promised to deliver a thriller against Josh Warrington after his last clash in Manchester was a snooze fest.

The former two-weight world champion takes on IBF featherweight title holder Warrington a week on Saturday at Manchester Arena.

Frampton’s last outing at the venue was his comfortable points win over bitter rival Scott Quigg.

That 2016 fight had a big build up as the pair’s teams clashed constantly but the action in the ring was one-sided as Frampton boxed smart to win on points.

But this time the Belfast man reckons he can deliver a knockout performance.

He said: “I do believe in every single department I’m better than him and that’s going to be the real difference.

“It’s a big fight, but there’s not the animosity there that me and Quigg had. But I think it’s going to be a better fight.

“When I look back on the Quigg fight, I’m disappointed with it. I won the fight and pretty comfortably, but it was a boring fight and we got a wee bit of stick about it.

“I wish it had been a bit more exciting and I think the Warrington fight will be the fight the Scott Quigg fight wasn’t.”

Meanwhile, Frampton has backed gym mate Rocky Fielding to raise a few eyebrows when the Liverpool man faces Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in New York this weekend.

He added: “Canelo is an amazing fighter but Rocky is a big man who can punch very hard. So you always have a chance of a shock.”

I think Warrington is catching Frampton just as he’s gotten over the hill a bit. Frampton is probably going to be the favourite but it won’t surprise me at all if Warrington beats him. No matter what Frampton’s going to…
