Frampton, nicknamed the Jackal, will face Parodi in a world title eliminator fight on 19 October.

And should the Tiger's Bay man win the bout he could be given a chance to take on current Super Bantamweight World Champion Kiko Martinez.

He told UTV: "I will be looking to be explosive. I want to be powerful and obviously get the win.

"But I want the knock out.

"Parodi has never been stopped before and I want the KO.

It’s a nice feeling when you knock these guys out.

Carl Frampton

Frampton, who has been dubbed one of British boxing's hottest properties, is undergoing extensive training ahead of the Odyssey clash under the watchful eye of former champion Barry McGuigan.

"He's got a little sprinkle of gold dust," said the Clones Cyclone.

"He can knock somebody out with either a left hook or a right hand.

"He has the power and I believe the kid can be a world star, I really believe he can.

"I believe he will win the world title within the next couple of fights."

Currently the European Super Bantamweight champion, Frampton has been out of the ring since February through injury and for him the Parodi fight can't come soon enough.
