Carl Frampton Film Study on Jeremy Parodi Involves Watching Fort Boyard

Lee Walker@@Lee_BleacherRUK Managing EditorOctober 17, 2013

Northern Irish boxer Carl Frampton is just one fight away from a world title shot, but he has had an unconventional preparation for Saturday's fight with Jeremy Parodi.

The Frenchman has fought 36 times, winning 35, but footage of him in action ahead of the  IBF World Super-Bantamweight Title eliminator at Belfast's Odyssey Arena seems hard to come by.

Instead the 26-year-old has been watching his opponent on physical endurance TV show Fort Boyard according to ESPN.

I've seen very little footage of Parodi but I did see him on a French version of Fort Boyard on YouTube the other day and he failed the task. He had to pull himself along and get the key but ended up falling off. I was watching it thinking 'I would've passed that task'. That's all I've seen. If he can't pass a task like that on Fort Boyard then I don't know.
