Carl Frampton's promoters are seeing this as a great chance for Frampton to get a win over a well-respected name in Nonito Donaire. Boxing fans are well aware of Donaire's accomplishments (four world titles in four different weight divisions).
Nonito Donaire possesses crisp counter punching and has a very dangerous left hook. He also has a 6 inch reach advantage over Carl Frampton. However, Donaire's career seems to be on the decline and that is why Oddsmakers have set him as the clear underdog in this fight.
This is a must-win contest for both of these boxers. Frampton has something to prove after losing the featherweight title to Leo Santa Cruz and then struggling in his comeback fight against Horacio Garcia. While Nonito Donaire is looking to stay relevant after last year's loss to Diego Magdaleno and a subsequent split from Top Rank Promotions.
Frampton will have the support of the crowd in Belfast cheering him on and you figure that could play a factor if the one goes to the judge's scorecards. Donaire has only been knocked out once in his career (by Nicholas Walters) while Frampton is a relatively light puncher with only 14 KO's to his name. So, there is a good chance this fight goes the distance.
