Frampton ready to impress in Texas

Belfast's IBF super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton says he will have no fears about fighting close to Alejandro Gonzalez Jnr's backyard when he defends his title in Texas on 18 July.

"The Mexican fans have a great appreciation of boxing and I am looking forward to fighting in front of them and impressing them," Frampton told BBC FiveLive.

It will be the Belfast boxer's first bout in the United States and the second defence of his world title.
