Carl Frampton made a special guest appearance at a Belfast nightclub at the weekend as he continued his homecoming victory celebrations.

The Belfast man made history last month when he became the first Northern Ireland boxer to win world titles at two weight divisions when he defeated Leo Santa Cruz in New York.

It came just after vast crowds gathered on Friday at Belfast City Hall to welcome the champion home.

Frampton told the crowd: "I love Belfast and I want to fight here as much as possible.”

A rematch with Santa Cruz later this year back in the US or in Belfast has been mooted.

Asked where his next fight would be, Frampton replied: “I don’t know yet. We need to discuss Santa Cruz, there is potential for a rematch with Santa Cruz.”

He added: “I want to be fighting here more often, I want to be fighting here at least once a year - Windsor Park in the summer.”
