Carl Frampton is out to make a big statement on Saturday….

Two weight world champion Carl Frampton 23-1 cant wait to get back in the ring in front of his home crowd on Saturday. The fight will mark the start of a new journey for the local hero, following on from his split from Cyclone Promotions and trainer Shane McGuigan. He’s keen to get going under new trainer Jamie Moore and promoter Frank Warren. He also claims he is in peak condition ahead of the bout –


“I feel good,” said Frampton. “It’s the best I’ve ever felt so close to a fight if I’m being honest. I’m relaxed but excited as well. People are noticing a wee spring in my step so I’m happy and looking forward to the fight.”

“I can’t wait to get going,” said Frampton. “It’s two-and-a-half years since I last fought in Belfast and I’ve a good record here – a 100 per cent stoppage rate in the Odyssey so I’m hoping to continue that.”

Also ringside for the bout will be superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez who will be there to support his fellow Mexican Garcia –

“Canelo is going to be ringside and it’s an honour to have him here with him making the trip the whole way to Belfast,” said Frampton. “Obviously he’ll be here supporting Horacio Garcia, but he’ll be leaving disappointed when I get the win. But it’s great to have him here.”
