Carl Frampton embraces Nonito Donaire at the end of their epic 12-round bout in April 2018.

Boxing legend Nonito Donaire is backing Carl Frampton to make history on Saturday night by becoming the first Irish fighter to win world titles in three weight classes.

Frampton, who outpointed Donaire in 2018, will bid to dethrone WBO world super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring in Dubai and while Donaire expects it to be a tough fight he believes the Belfast man has the skill and guile to take the belt.

Donaire knows all about moving up weights at the elite level, having started off as a flyweight and landed titles all the way up to super-bantam.
