Photos: Carl Frampton, Darren Traynor - Face To Face at Final Presser

CARL FRAMPTON takes on Darren Traynor in the fourth show of Frank Warren's summer series, live on BT Sport on Saturday night. The Jackal is bidding to keep himself firmly on track for a WBO world super featherweight title showdown against Jamel Herring later this year, so he cannot afford any slip-ups against the tough Scot from Aberdeen.


Also on the card, Michael Conlan faces former world title challenger Sofiane Takoucht over ten rounds, with Troy Williamson also defending his IBF European super welterweight title against former English champion Harry Scarff. Archie Sharp defends his WBO European belt against Jeff Ofori, with elite level prospects Dennis McCann and Paddy Donovan making up the card.

Frank Warren - "We have already done three shows since lockdown and that was us dipping our toe back in the water. It was a case of getting the shows on and doing what we had to do as far as the safety aspect was concerned, while we got some of our young guys out and now we are stepping it up a gear.

"Carl, a two-weight world champion, who was due to fight in the summer against Jamel Herring before the virus took hold, so now in the meantime he has got to keep busy and on Saturday he is fighting Darren Traynor as a replacement for his original opponent. Darren has been training very hard and fancies his chances.

"It is something Carl has got to come through and not make any mistakes before getting to Herring in the autumn. Michael Conlan is not far off fighting for a world title and he is fighting Sofiane Takoucht, who has had 40 fights and won 35 of them. So he is very experienced and can give Michael a lot of things to think about."

[QUOTE=Get em up;20699055]There's quite a height difference in the 2 isn't there. I can see Frampton getting the knockout too though.[/QUOTE] Yeah Traynor is definitely the naturally bigger man. Frampton should be levels above though.

Frampton by KO or wide decision

Clearly Frampton is a strong favourite in this fight. I wonder if he’s got anything left at world level... was a class act a few years back. Can’t help but think his best days are behind him though.

HUGE opportunity for Traynor. Fully expect Frampton by KO though.
