Windsor dream is on the line against Donaire: Frampton

By David Kelly

Carl Frampton says he has to be at his very best or a dream World title fight at Windsor Park will go up in smoke on April 21 at Belfast's SSE Arena.

Frampton clashes with Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire in one of the biggest fights to ever come to Northern Ireland - with the winner going on to challenge for another world title belt.

Frampton said he expects the fight to be confirmed as an official final eliminator for a crack at the WBO World featherweight title held, currently held by Mexican Oscar Valdez.

Four-weight world champion Donaire admitted it was a "make or break fight", while former champion Frampton stated: "This is the fight I need to win to get the big fight at Windsor Park and I will leave no stone unturned in my preparation."
