Photos: Carl Frampton, Josh Warrington - Ready For War

Carl Frampton seemingly is the bigger puncher, but Josh Warrington was the bigger fighter Friday when they stood face-to-face.

The 5-feet-7 Warrington appeared to stand about two inches taller than Frampton once they weighed in for their 12-round, 126-pound title fight Saturday night in Manchester, England. The featherweights were essentially the same amount when they stepped on the British Boxing Board of Control scale, with Warrington weighing slightly less (125¾ pounds) than Frampton (126 pounds).

The 31-year-old Frampton (26-1, 15 KOs) will challenge the 28-year-old Warrington (27-0, 6 KOs) for the IBF featherweight championship Warrington won from Lee Selby in his last fight. Warrington edged Wales’ Selby (26-2, 9 KOs) by split decision in their 12-rounder May 19 in Leeds, England, Warrington’s hometown.

Frampton, a former featherweight and super bantamweight champ, will try to extend his winning streak to four fights. He has beaten Horacio Garcia and Nonito Donaire by unanimous decision and Luke Jackson by technical knockout since Leo Santa Cruz defeated him by majority decision in their immediate rematch nearly two years ago in Las Vegas.

[QUOTE=sunny31;19374103]Can't see it, I think it will be tougher than expected but Frampton isn't just a show pony, he can fight too. My only concern is he looks drained, I think he's getting tight at the weight and once you…
