Carl Frampton’s date with destiny is set to arrive on Saturday night as he challenges Jamel Herring for the WBO super-featherweight world title.
Frampton is already a two-weight world champion having won belts at both super-bantamweight and featherweight.
Now though, he has stepped up to super-featherweight and is attempting to become the first ever Irish three-weight champion.
The 34-year-old is at the tail-end of his time in the sport and hoping to pull out one last great performance to cap off his magnificent career.
Herring is 35 and has been beaten twice before.
However, he has not lost since 2017 and impressed with recent victories over Masayuki Ito and Lamont Roach.

What happens next after Frampton vs Herring?
If he wins, Frampton’s US co-promoter Bob Arum has stated that he’ll likely defend the belt against mandatory challenger Shakur Stevenson.
Shakur is one of American boxing’s hottest young talents and Frampton would be a big underdog in this bout.
The idea would be for it to take place at Windsor Park in Belfast as a fitting farewell.
However, if he loses to Herring then Frampton has already told talkSPORT he will retire from boxing.
