Carl Frampton 'closing in' on world title bout

Belfast's Carl Frampton says he expects to be fighting for a world title by February 2014.

First of all, though, he must see off Jeremy Parodi of France on 19 October in what is being billed as an IBF super bantamweight title eliminator.

"I seem to be the one people are expecting to be a world champion, and I want to live up to those expectations," said Frampton.
