With Saturday night, in Belfast, fast approaching, the big IBF super-bantamweight world title fight between Carl Frampton and Chris Avalos is eagerly awaited.

Yesterday we ran an article whereby we featured the challenger and his prediction that he was coming to Belfast to take the title off of Frampton, today we feature Frampton as he responds to those comments made by Avalos whilst also throwing into the ring the suggestion that he is a better fighter than his mentor Barry McGuigan.

This is what Frampton had to say,

?Barry was an out and out pressure fighter who got in your face and wore you down.

?I prefer people to come to me. I don?t think he?d mind me saying this, I think I?m a more well-rounded fighter than Barry because I can go back and come forward.

?I think we are both very driven people though. We both want to keep winning. The way he trains even now is crazy ? he?s one of the most determined men I?ve come across.?

And as for facing Avalos, Frampton added,

?I genuinely believe I?m the best super-bantamweight in the world and if the fight goes 12 rounds, I have trained for that.

?But this guys just a little too hittable so I think I will knock him out at some point. He?s a good fighter ? a typical kind of loud-mouth American. He likes to talk a lot. He has lost twice against guys who aren?t as good as me.?

Things are starting to heat up for what was, already, an intriguing fight.
