Dubai: You’re at all times somewhat emotional when you find yourself about to step within the ring, however there is a little more on the road this weekend in Dubai.
Carl Frampton (28-2, 16 KOs) is a British hero and he’s warming as much as take his place alongside the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather as one of many best multi-weight champions.
He has his likelihood on Saturday evening within the UAE as he takes on Jamel Herring (22-2, 10 KOs) for his world title bid at a 3rd weight. Dubai will see its greatest title battle when Frampton takes on Herring for the WBO super-flyweight belt.
The Briton is aware of much more is at stake than a little bit of gold.
In an unique chat with Gulf Information earlier than the large decider, Frampton mentioned: “I am pretty confident I will win this fight. I see this as an opportunity to stamp my legacy.”
In one other twist, Frampton mentioned he’ll stop the sport altogether if he loses to Herring. That is from a person who’s an MBE and a nationwide boxing hero.
However – to reassure his followers – he insists he isn’t going anyplace quickly.
“I will never give up. but if I lose I will retire,” he informed Gulf Information. “There has been a lot of chat about me quitting but I am 34 years old and I am not thinking of losing. It is not an issue, we just win.”
“I know I will be a three-weight champion, But I will be the first champion in Dubai. And I love it. I sparred, I won, I am faster. I have never won all my spars … I have never been quicker. I will destroy him. Jamal is a little older than me but I know I am here in Dubai to make a statement.” The pair battle it out for Herring’s WBO tremendous featherweight strap at Ceasers Bluewaters in Dubai on Saturday and the Northern Irishman Frampton might be up towards a formidable oppnent. Jamal mentioned: “ I am not young either but I have a legacy. I want them to remember me.”
Both means, historical past is about to be made on Saturday evening.
