Carl Frampton believes he is better than Josh Warrington in “every single department” ahead of their meeting in Manchester later this month.

Frampton is a former two-weight world champion and has a record of 26 wins, 15 inside the distance, and one defeat in 27 outings.

The Northern Irish star is bidding to land Warrington’s IBF featherweight world title on December 22 and is 1.44 to secure the win.

Warrington is yet to taste defeat after 27 fights, with six wins by KO, but ‘The Jackal’ is convinced he will end the Leeds native’s unbeaten run.

“I have enough power to hurt him,” he said, as reported by The Mirror. “I do believe in every single department I’m better than him, and that’s going to be the real difference.

“Potentially I could stop him, but I’m not going to go looking for that. I’m preparing for 12 gruelling rounds. But I do have the power to take him out.

I do have the power to take any featherweight out in the world if I hit them clean. Josh Warrington is a featherweight and I could take him out.

“I’ve beaten big names, I’ve beaten all sorts of different styles. Josh Warrington doesn’t have anything I’ve never seen before.”

Warrington is 2.88 to secure the biggest win of his career by seeing off Frampton, with a draw 19.00.
