Barry McGuigan has been my inspiration says Carl Frampton 

"I'm the better fighter in every department," insisted Frampton, at the press conference at the Europa Hotel.

"I have to say that I have the best fans in the world. I could never have imagined when I started out that it would get as big as this and I feel very honoured and privileged to have the support that I do - we'll be taking over Manchester come February 27.

"I know that I can make this fight very easy for myself if I am smart."

Frampton's manager Barry McGuigan said: "We will have the most support on February 27, it will feel like Belfast and if he thinks it will not be then he's deluding himself - he doesn't have the support that Carl has. When we walk in there on February 27 it will feel like we're boxing in the SSE Arena.

"It's a massive attraction, so much so that the Manchester Arena have said that including concerts, no other event has had interest like it."
