Carl Frampton will aim to become a four-time world champion on Saturday night when he takes on Josh Warrington, who makes the first defence of his IBF featherweight world title. Here's everything you need to know about where to watch, what time it all gets underway, and who the bookies are tipping for the title.

When and where?

Fight night will take place in the Manchester Arena on Saturday 22nd December.

How can you watch the action?

The fight is live on BT Sport Box Office for £19.95, coverage begins at 6pm. BBC Radio Ulster and BBC 5 Live will also provide live commentary of the fight.

What time is Frampton's ring walk?

Frampton and Warrington are expected to take to the ring around 10pm, depending on the length of the bouts on the undercard.

Who is on the undercard?

Before the title fight gets underway there's a packed undercard, including Tyson Fury's brother Tommy making his pro debut, Billy Joe Saunders making his long awaited return to the ring, and a host of Northern Irish talent will also feature.

Mark Heffron vs Liam Williams (middleweight)

Nathan Gorman vs Razvan Cojanu (heavyweight)

Fighters' form

Carl Frampton has one defeat on his record, alongside his 26 wins and 56% stoppage rate. Frampton comes into this one off the back of realising his lifelong dream of fighting in front of a sold out Windsor Park, when he defeated Australian Luke Jackson back in August.

Josh Warrington currently holds the IBF featherweight world title, and is unbeaten with 27 wins including six knockouts. While Frampton's Windsor dream came true, Warrington was busy making history at the home of his beloved Leeds United, when he recorded a world-title win over Lee Selby in May.

Who is the bookies' favourite?

Warrington is a longest price of 2/1 to keep his title, whilst the best odds on Frampton are around 4/7.

Frampton on points seems to be where all the focus is as a top price of 6/4 with most bookies.
