BoxNation only place to watch Carl Frampton’s world title bid as fight heads for a sell out
BoxNation will be the only place to watch Carl Frampton’s IBF world title eliminator, with the Odyssey Arena in Belfast set for a sell out.
The Irish super-bantamweight will take what would be his final step before a world title fight if he can get past slick Frenchman Jeremy Parodi on Saturday 19th October.
Tickets for the contest have been in huge demand with the initial arena seating sold out. As a result, Cyclone Promotions have been forced to open up additional seating, with the extra tickets set to be snapped up, making the fight the biggest the Odyssey Arena in Belfast has ever seen.
Carl Frampton said: “October 19th is a huge night for me and my team. I can't wait to box in front of my home fans in a sell out arena.”
The hotly anticipated fight will see Frampton, who is managed by boxing legend, Barry McGuigan, and trained by his son Shane, take on the IBF world number four Parodi. If successful, Frampton will put himself in pole position for a shot at the world title early next year.
Barry McGuigan said: “It is unimaginable the feeling a fighter has boxing in front of a sell out home crowd. Carl’s punches, speed & accuracy will no doubt secure a Belfast victory for us. He’s in the best shape of his life and has been training hard with Shane over the past months.”
