The two super-bantamweights face off in front of a sold out 8,500 crowd as the winner looks to put themselves into pole position for a chance at the IBF world title, currently held by Spain’s Kiko Martinez, who Frampton stopped in the ninth round back in February this year to claim the EBU and IBF Intercontinental titles.
After hearing Parodi's talk in midweek of trying to outbox him, Frampton believes the occasion will be a whole new experience for the man from Toulon and has urged him to give the fans a scrap to remember.
“It’s amazing to be fighting in front of a sold out arena. The atmosphere the last time was special against Kiko Martinez and I’m expecting it to be even better this time, there’s even more people in,” said Frampton.
“It’s going to get hostile for Parodi - he would have never seen anything like it before.
“He’s talking about that he wants to box me. If that’s the case, I’ll find a way to beat him, but I would like him to come and have a fight because that’s going to make it more interesting and exciting for the fans,” he added.
Frampton has admitted that once he takes care of business on Saturday night he has the desire to challenge the very best the world has to offer. “I obviously want to box at home as much as possible but I would be telling lies if I said that I didn’t want to fight in America before my career was over,” he said.
“Rigondeaux is the main guy in the division, in my eyes, and everyone else’s eyes – he’s a hell of a fighter. He’s getting on a bit though and I’ll be ready to fight him in a couple of fights - I’m getting pretty close,” said Frampton.
“But a massive fight for me and one I’m licking my lips over is Leo Santa Cruz. I would love that fight - it would be a tear up."
