Carl Frampton has said his training is "ahead of schedule" with just four weeks to go until the highly-anticipated superbantamweight unification fight against Scott Quigg.

The clash between Belfast boxer Frampton, the IBF champion, and Scott Quigg, the WBA belt-holder, will see someone's perfect record go as they determine the number one domestic boxer in the division.

His London training under coach Shane McGuigan has seen him lifting more than his own body weight.

Frampton said being in London means there are zero distractions.

He told Sky Sports: "For me to be training, it's easier for me to be out here.  I can walk down the street and nobody really spots me.

"Coming from Belfast it's a lot smaller in size it's a bit more laid back. Everyone seems to be rushing in London.

"Although it's a metropolis, I don't allow any distractions to get in the road."

With just four weeks to go until the sold-out fight in Manchester Arena Frampton says his fitness is good.

"For the last three weeks I've been sparring ten rounds which I'm not usually doing so far, so my fitness is good. I'm trying to bring my weight down and hold it a bit further out at a weight I feel I fight the best at.

"At this stage everything is good and postitive. I'm starting to get the itch, I want to go."

And with the big day looming closer Frampton is in no doubt who he thinks will lift the title on the night.

"People think that he's (Quigg)  the best fighter in the UK, some think he's the best in the world at superbantamweight which is crazy in my eyes. I just want to prove them that I know I can beat this guy.

"Him on his best day, against me on my best day, I don't think there is any competition."

The World Title fight on February 27 will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office.
