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.
