Editor's Viewpoint: Frampton's win on famous night was well deserved
belfast boxer Carl Frampton showed his true class after he decisively defeated Australian challenger Luke Jackson in nine rounds at Windsor Park on Saturday night.
He has now set himself up for a world title shot against IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington in a showdown that will hopefully take place by the end of the year.
Frampton fulfilled his dream by fighting in front of a 25,000 home crowd and he did them proud. The atmosphere was simply electric all night.
He has done so much for the image of Northern Ireland.
Carl is indeed a champion boxer and also a champion human being.
