Frampton miffed at underdog tag - McGuigan
- From the section Boxing
Carl Frampton's manager Barry McGuigan says his fighter is "revved up" by his underdog status ahead of Saturday night's world title fight against WBA featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz.
McGuigan said Frampton, the former WBA and IBF super-bantamweight champion, is "miffed" that he is considered an outsider to beat the Mexican and is healthier and stronger than he's ever been.
New York-based former Irish professional boxer John Duddy said "the stage is set" for Frampton and backed him to make the city a second home for Irish boxing fans.
