Carl Frampton, who became the European super-bantamweight champion in Belfast on Saturday night when he stopped Spain's Kiko Martinez in the ninth round, is set for a final eliminator for the IBF world title on 11 May.

"I want to be a world champion; I feel the buzz and it's getting better," said the 25-year-old Northern Irishman, who is trained by Barry McGuigan's son, Shane. "With the help of this Belfast public, I can go right to the top."
