Frampton says he won't look beyond Luke

Frampton says he won't look beyond Luke

With Northern Irishman Frampton landing shots at will, Jackson had no answers and soon after his corner saved him from further damage at a sold-out Windsor Park.

"It is going to be a fantastic occasion", Warren said. "We have Ireland's best in action".

The discipline to evade Donaire's big shots for the most part, bar one blip in the 11th impressed, but perhaps his best attribute, his footwork was on point once again as he darted in and out of range. After this he will be in a major, major fight which fans will love, but (Luke) Jackson is here to win, and upsets happen. This is Carl's dream and I don't want it turning into a nightmare.

Belfast's own Paddy Barnes has already suffered painful defeat to champion Cristofer Rosales in their WBC World flyweight title fight.

Jackson continued to struggle into the second round and found it hard to deal with Frampton's sharp movement, with the Irish fighter staying on the front foot throughout and landing a few crisp body blows.

Carl Frampton has dismissed Luke Jackson's claims he is looking beyond their fight on Saturday - and insists that after rediscovering his passion for boxing he has entered his prime.

"The fans were unbelievable, the noise from start to finish", Frampton said in the ring after the bout.

"When you start bringing big numbers (of supporters) to Vegas and NY, then you start to think about Windsor".

Harvard professor slams coconut oil, says, ‘It’s pure poison’
Studies show that coconut oil is the second most absorbent oil (behind olive) for lipid penetration within the epidermis. It is true that coconut oil has some intriguing qualities that, at first glance, make it seem like it's a healthy food.

"I'm not taking my eye off the ball because this is a fight I need to win", he stressed.

"I thought Carl was overlooking me", Jackson countered, "but he knows what is at stake". If Carl loses to me his career is over. If I didn't believe I could win I'd pack up and retire. I did what I had to do and the towel came in.

"I've got a lot of respect for this man".

"I don't box to be second best or to make the numbers up, I box to be the best I can be". A 67-year-old man has travelled halfway around the world for me. "I have tried to prepare mentally for all the things that can happen, and we have to see if it works". We're now going to make the dream fight.

He hasn't endeared himself to the Jackal Army and will surely feel their wrath in fight week and fight night.

Josh Warrington's surprise victory over Lee Selby back in May meant that the expected showdown the Welshman vanished, while WBO champ, Oscar Valdez is sidelined until November with a broken jaw sustained against Scott Quigg. I want these big fights.

"He knows boxing and he knows it's going to be tough".

"I don't want to put pressure on myself by saying I'm going to stop him but I haven't had a knockout in a while and I'm going to prove that I still carry a dig. He is here, so he's keen, and I'm as keen as mustard, so let's do it".
