A slip-up could end title fights - Frampton

Carl Frampton admits that a slip-up against four-weight world champion Nonito Donaire could be a fatal blow to his title aspirations.

Frampton, a former two-weight world champion, meets the battle-hardened Filipino in a crucial featherweight 12-rounder at the Odyssey Arena on April 21.

"I don't think there's been a bigger name than Nonito Donaire and he's coming to fight a local guy in his home town," said Belfast-native Frampton.

"But I think both of us are in the same situation - a slip-up here and one of us might never fight for a world title again.

"The winner of this fight will no doubt get a world title shot," said Frampton, who is eyeing up a tilt at the winner of the Lee Selby versus Josh Warrington IBF clash in May.

"On the world stage, I think this is a bigger fight than Lee Selby against Josh Warrington, which is a world title fight, so it's huge," added Frampton.

Meanwhile, Irish southpaw Noel Murphy reckons the lights will go down on Broadway for Mikkel LesPierre on February 7.

The Macroom lefty meets the undefeated New Yorker in the main event of the evening at the BB King Blues Club in New York over eight rounds.
