Frampton is looking to make a BIG statement and sees Dominguez as an obstacle in the road to a future clash with Mexican warrior, undefeated WBO featherweight champion, Oscar Valdez. Frampton looks to prove he still has what it takes to be world champion. Frampton was a decorated amateur who amassed over 100 wins. Frampton is a former two division champ and he losses come by way of close competitive decisions.
Dominguez is aware Frampton is looking past him to Valdez but Dominguez feels that this gives him added motivation. ” I am not a stepping stone” said Dominguez. ” I am coming to Philadelphia to ruin Carl’s plans”. Dominguez has won 4 of his last 5 fights via KO and looks to prove that he is not a name to fill on someone’s ring resume.
