CARL FRAMPTON believes he is better than ever while Luke Jackson takes inspiration from countryman, and Olympic team-mate, Jeff Horn dethroning Manny Pacquiao last year.

This was all revealed at a BT press conference today as it was confirmed that Australian Luke Jackson, 16-0 (7), will meet Carl Frampton at Windsor Park on August 18, with Tyson Fury and Paddy Barnes both competing on the undercard (in separate contests).

Jackson turned professional in 2013 having enjoyed a successful amateur career that saw the Tasmanian captain his nation at the 2012 London Olympics, something the 32 year-old believes prepares him well to deal with the challenge come August 18.
