Avalos is coming off of nice six-fight winning streak that has included stoppages over Drian Francisco, Rolly Lunas, and Yasutaka Ishimoto.

In each fight the 25-year old showed poise, power, and attacked with patient aggression.

Frampton, meanwhile, is regarded as one of the top young champions in the game and will be a tough assignment, so it’s good to see Avalos giving his all towards this opportunity. The fight should be nothing short of war.
