Carl Frampton is looking to go down in the history of Irish Boxing as the first three weight boxing champion. Frampton takes on James Herring in a super-featherweight championship fight on Saturday in Dubai.
“For me to win this fight, I will need to be perfect,” he said. “If I carry out my game-plan, I believe I will win this fight. Everything is aligning. I will expect the best Jamel Herring I have ever seen.”
“His last performance was criticised. My own performance in my last fight wasn’t brilliant. I am prepared to be better.” he added. “Hopefully Jamel is as well. I think the fact I got here early is certainly a benefit to me. We will see what happens. I expect a big performance from Jamel and I am prepared for that.”
Frampton is hoping that having his mum and dad present in the crowd will give him the added inspiration for the fight. His amateur coach, Cooper McClure will also be in attendance as he bids to become only the fourth British boxer to achieve the feat.
