Frampton: Warrington is Wrong, My Peak Years Are Right Now

CARL FRAMPTON INSISTS the IBF world champion Josh Warrington is clutching at straws if he is banking on him being on the decline ahead of the pair’s blockbuster encounter at the Manchester Arena on December 22.

The 31-year-old two weight world champion suspects his younger rival is taking confidence from the belief that he has seen better days, with Frampton considering his optimum fighting condition to be right now.

The Belfast hero is coming into the fight off the back of a convincing victory over Luke Jackson at Windsor Park in August, where he defended the WBO Interim world featherweight title he won so impressively against multi-weight world champion Nonito Donaire at the SSE Arena in April.

“He’s wrong and I think that is maybe what they are going off and they are hoping that I have reached my peak,” the Jackal told BT Sport, who will be screening the fight exclusively in the UK via the BT Box Office platform. “But I haven’t and I believe my peak years are right now.

“I believe I am performing better than I have ever done. I am feeling better, certainly mentally and physically, than I have ever done.

“Warrington is wrong and I am in my peak years right now.”

Also on the card, JJ Metcalf will defend his WBC International super-welterweight title against Liam Williams in support of the main event, while Mark Heffron will challenge for the British middleweight title.

Belfast’s blue chip featherweight prospect Michael Conlan (9-0) also features on the bill along with world flyweight title challenger Paddy Barnes (5-1) and unbeaten Light Heavyweight contender Steven Ward (9-0).

Tickets are priced at £50 Upper Tier, £80 Tier, £100 Tier, £150 Tier, £200 Floor/Tier, £300 Floor, £400 Floor, £600 Inner Ring VIP Hospitality and are available. Tickets available via Eventim.

Carl Fraudton, we all know you keep fighting for money after you squandered it away under Barry McGuigan. Even Google dont believe you anymore. Last time you said by 32 you would retire, now you are prime again? Please share…
