Carl Frampton's ring jacket worn at Luke Jackson fight

Carl Frampton has been reunited with his ring jacket which went missing on the night of his fight with Luke Jackson at Windsor Park.

Frampton, in a social media post, said the blue and white jacket went missing from ringside on the night of the fight on Saturday.

Thousands had packed into the open-air venue for the bill which also featured Tyson Fury and Paddy Barnes.

Frampton said: "My ring jacket from my fight with Luke Jackson went missing from ringside on the night of the fight.

"Obviously there's a big sentimental attachment to it and I'd like it back. If anybody knows it's whereabouts please get in touch."

However, around an hour later the Tiger's Bay man posted that he had located the jacket and praised social media for helping him find it.

Frampton defeated the previously unbeaten Australian in front of his home crowd, with Jackson's corner eventually intervening to end the contest during the ninth round.

Having successfully defended the interim WBO title, Frampton will be confirmed as mandatory challenger to full champion Oscar Valdez but will next fight IBF titlist Josh Warrington, who was present at Windsor Park on Saturday.
