FIRST of all I am delighted to have beaten Steve Molitor at the Odyssey on Saturday night.
Secondly I would like to thank the most important member of ‘Team Frampton’ for helping me to victory.
And no, it’s not Barry McGuigan, Gerry Storey Snr or Jnr, Shane McGuigan or promoter Eddie Hearn.
The most important member of my team is my fiancée Christine and I would like to say a big thank-you to her.
Christine puts loads of hard work in with our daughter Carla when I am away training in England for long periods of time for my fights.
It is not easy for Christine being here on her own and I just wanted to let her know that I appreciate it very much.
Christine has always been very supportive of my career and she knows how important this is to me.
So Christine, thank you for everything. I appreciate and love you loads.
Anyway – back to the boxing and I am over the moon to still have my unbeaten record after overcoming Molitor in Belfast at the weekend.
It was good to get him out of there in the sixth round and I have to say I felt great and was enjoying it in there.
It was the strongest and fittest I have felt for a fight and I could have gone at that pace for the whole 12 rounds.
We wanted to jump on him from the first bell and push the pace and I did just that.
People can say what they want about Molitor but I got the job done and now we can move on to bigger and better things.
All the fights from here on will just get tougher – so I will have to be ready for the test when it arrives.
I am hoping to be out again in December but we will have to wait and see.
I might not get out then and may have to wait until January but I don’t mind training over Christmas as I have done it many times as an amateur.
It was also good to see all the local lads win their fights at the Odyssey on Saturday night.
Paul McCloskey got his career back on track.
The Dungiven southpaw is a very talented boy and he still has the ability and skills to fight for a World title.
Martin Lindsay also got a victory under his belt – and he must have been gutted when his British title fight against Lee Selby fell through on the morning on the fight.
So for Lindsay to put on the show he did shows the character he has.
And congratulations to Martin on the birth of his son Brody – he will now know the joys of sleepless nights!
Also on Saturday night Eamonn O’Kane and Paddy Gallagher both won their fights – so well done to them as well.
There is more to come from the two of them as they both have loads of ability.
It was great to see a big crowd at the Odyssey for the fights and the atmosphere was out of this world.
Let us hope it is the first of many.
Finally, I am looking forward to spending a bit of time at home with Christine and Carla.
I miss the two of them when I am away – so to get home for a while is great.
They are the reason I want to succeed as a boxer.
The two of them are my inspiration and I don’t plan on letting them down.
