Comfort zone: Carl Frampton is relaxed ahead of tomorrow’s showdown

As he prepares for an unexpected debut in the lightweight division, Carl Frampton has said this most unusual of fight weeks has been one of his most enjoyable.

The Jackal had been due to face Vahran Vardanyam at super-featherweight, but the Armenian was unable to secure a work permit, forcing a late change in opponent with Darren Traynor now in the opposite corner.

The Scot - who had been training for a number of weeks having been put on standby by Frampton's management MTK - was only too happy to step in, but unable to make the super-featherweight limit of 130lbs, the fight will instead take place at 135.
