BBC Sport - Chris Avalos vows that he will take Carl Frampton's world title

Avalos vows to take Frampton's title

American Chris Avalos insists that he will dethrone IBF world super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton on 28 February in Belfast.

Frampton will be making the first defence of his title at the Odyssey Arena and the Belfast man scoffed at Avalos's confidence during Thursday's news conference.

"I'm the first world-class fighter that you will fight. You have lost to Chris Martin and Jonatan Romero - two fringe world-class fighters, but not genuine world-class.

"You are going to get knocked out," insisted Frampton, 27.
