Carl Frampton is confident he has the tools to dismantle Scott Quigg in Manchester on Saturday night – and he is ready to prove it.

The British duo took part in a lively press conference on Thursday and tensions were again high at the weigh-in at the Manchester Arena on Friday.

Belfast star Frampton weighed in at 121.7 pounds and engaged in over a minute of staring with his English opponent – who tipped the scales at 121.5 pounds – before blowing a kiss.

“I am better than him,” Frampton confidently declared.

“I have the power to knock him out, from the first round to the last round, and I’ve also got the boxing brain to comprehensively beat him on points.”

The two undefeated British world champions meet to contest for Frampton’s IBF belt and Quigg’s WBA crown.

“This is the only real rivalry I’ve had in my career, it’s been five years brewing and brewing, and getting bigger all the time,” Frampton added.
