CARL FRAMPTON and Josh Warrington made weight for their IBF featherweight title fight at a fiery weigh-in in Manchester Friday.

Frampton, in the unaccustomed position of challenger, scaled 8st 13lbs 14oz. Warrington, a shade taller and in magnificent shape was 8st 13lbs 9oz.

“I do give him credit, that was a good win against Lee Selby [to win the title]. This is a different fight and I’m a different fighter to anything he’s faced before,” Frampton warned Warrington. “I’m enjoying boxing more than I’ve ever enjoyed it.
