Anthony Cacace and Conrad Cummings have looked on in recent weeks as Carl Frampton prepares for his IBF World title defence against Chris Avalos at the Odyssey.

On Saturday night both Cacace and Cummings will showcase their talents on the undercard and both say Frampton is ready to face the challenge of Avalos head-on.

Cacace – who faces Santiago Bustos looking to keep his unbeaten record intact – admits Frampton has been flying in sparring.

“He is an animal. Carl has been looking fantastic in the sessions.

“He has been sparring three different partners each day and he is brilliant to watch and I learn loads watching him. He’s a class act.

“And this is my biggest fight to date in front of the biggest crowd and I am live on the television. I am buzzing for it.My opponent on Saturday night is a tough guy but I am ready for whatever he has.”

And Cummings – who takes on Roberto Palenzuela on Saturday – agrees with Cacace.

“Carl is looking sensational and I think he is getting better and better. I think winning the World title has given him extra confidence and belief and he is flying.

“He was doing 12 rounds of sparring with three guys who are all bigger than him and he is finishing on top and beating these guys up.

“He is going to take care of Avalos in style. The sparring partners were impressed with his power and his boxing ability,” he added.

And Cummings says he can’t wait for the green light on Saturday night.

“The excitement is growing and I am now can’t wait to walk out with my music blaring. It’s spine-tingling and I am looking forward to it.”
