Frampton’s Day Of Reckoning is Here!

And so the day has arrived.

The day on which Carl Frampton could fulfil what he believes to be his destiny and become the IBF super-bantamweight world title holder.

If Carl needs any reassurances on what is needed tonight, in the purpose built 16,000 arena at the Titanic Quarter, in Belfast, he needs to look no further than his promoter Barry McGuigan.

The Clones Cyclone treated everybody to a fantastic night at Loftus Road, back in 1985 when he beat Eusebio Pedroza on points over 15 magnificent rounds to claim the featherweight title.

McGuigan has been a hero ever since but Barry is of the opinion that his charge has the chance to go onto even greater things than he did, remarking ahead of the fight,

“I think Carl has the potential to be one of the greatest fighters Ireland has ever produced.”

“I think he can supersede everybody because he’s so special. He’s the full package.”

“Victory would put him up there, but it’s what we do after this that will dictate where he sits in the pantheon of great Irish boxers.”


Like we’ve said in earlier articles, tonight will be a tough battle but if you recall back in 1985 Shepherds Bush was packed to the rafters with Irishmen cheering Barry across the line and I have a feeling that’s exactly how it will be tonight in Belfast.
