Carl Frampton Defends Title Against Luke Jackson, Tyson Fury Makes Quick Return

Carl Frampton will defend his ‘interim’ WBO featherweight title against unbeaten Australian Luke Jackson at Windsor Park, Belfast on Saturday August 18, fulfilling a dream to fight at the famous football stadium.


Lineal World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury will box a non-title ten rounder in his second comeback fight on a mission to conquer the world once again. Paddy Barnes will challenge for the WBC Flyweight title in just his sixth professional contest when he faces champion Cristofer Rosales.


The Nicaraguan will be making the first defence of his title he captured in April with a stunning upset win against Daigo Higa.



“I thought last year Windsor Park had passed but Frank and the Irish Football Association have done a great job.


“I come here and watch the football team and the atmosphere cannot be beaten anywhere in the world. Its like 80,000 fans giving you support.


“I respect any opponent especially when they are coming to Windsor Park. “There are bigger fights but I cannot overlook Luke. Windsor Park need me to put on a big performance.


“Luke is an Olympian, an undefeated fighter and this can change his life if he beats me in a fight of this magnitude.


“This is a tougher fight than Scott Quigg who is just looking for a payday."


“I genuinely think I am better than three years ago and even big Tyson Fury wouldn’t beat me at Windsor Park."


“To have Tyson on the undercard and Paddy in a world title fight is something else.”




“My father told me I have Irish ancestors so I’m home."


“I’m a fan of Carl and he is humble. He is very good and I am going to have to be at my best.


“Carl doesn’t do anything great, but he is fundamentally sound and I am here to win. I am not here by luck.


“It has taken 16 years and got here through hard work and dedication."


“I roomed with Jeff Horn at London 2012 and to see him beat Manny Pacquiao gives me hope and I have this massive opportunity.


“My life will change overnight if I win. I have been proving people wrong for a long time and I am ready to do it again."


“I have been pretty vocal that I wanted Oscar Valdez, but this is even better. This is why we do it.”




“This will be my fourth time boxing in Belfast and I cannot wait."


“Seferi was 23-1 but as soon as I clipped him he didn’t want to know. I can’t complain. I am still good looking.


“I hope we get someone who will punch me in the face, bust my face, bust my nose and I can show them."


"I am still hoping for four fights this year.”
