Roaring success: Carl Frampton celebrates after his victory on Saturday night

The boxer Carl Frampton retained his European Super Bantamweight title in great style at the weekend and he now looks ready to join the ranks of Ulster's other legendary world champions, including Rinty Monaghan and Barry McGuigan.

The Carl Frampton story has all the elements of a blockbuster, with a possible world title and his impending marriage to a lovely local girl, which crosses the community divides.

It is also reassuring to know that in this province, where there is so much division in culture and background, the spectacular success of this young man can unite everyone. Well done Carl and here's to the future!
