CARL FRAMPTON is preparing for this month’s Windsor Park fight against Luke Jackson feeling “reinvigorated” and that his last performance was better than all but one in his career so far.

Having outpointed Filipino Nonito Donaire at Belfast’s SSE Arena in April, earning the WBO interim featherweight title, Frampton will be back in his native city taking on Australia’s Jackson on August 18.

It will be the third contest for Frampton – who has said it will “mean the world” to him to fight at the home of the Northern Ireland football team for the first time – since he started working with his trainer Jamie Moore.
