WATCH LIVE: Josh Warrington vs Carl Frampton Live

Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton both made weight in Manchester on Friday ahead of Saturday night’s IBF World Featherweight title bout.

This weekend sees the Leeds-born fighter making the first defence of the belt he so memorably won when he defeated Lee Selby at Elland Road back in May.

He now turns his attention to Frampton, with both men come in inside the champion weight to make their weight official. Warrington weighed 8 stone 13 pounds 9 ounces, while Frampton weighed in at 8 stones 13 pounds 14 ounces.

The Warrington camp had suggested that Frampton may be struggling at the weight, but the Irishman proved he is ready for a showdown tomorrow.

It’s already been a busy fight week, as Leeds United fan Warrington underwent a public workout on Tuesday, where he promised his fans that he will retain the belt this weekend.

Warrington and Frampton then met again at the final press conference on Wednesday, where Warrington spoke about his desire to take his Leeds fans to America with him for a huge fight.
