Carl Frampton: This is the song I should have walked out to against Nonito Donaire
Carl Frampton has revealed that the walk-in song played for his fight against Nonito Donaire was the wrong tune.
Frampton walked to the ring to the sound of 'Can't hold us' by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the same song that was played before his victory over Horacio Garcia in November.

However, Carl had requested a different song and for an important reason too.
"My wife Christine and her family have had a pretty rough time recently with a few deaths in the family and the anniversary of her father the other day as well," he explained after seeing off Donaire by unanimous decision. "I wanted to come out to the song 'Something Inside so Strong' and some eejit played the wrong song."
But, he soon put his mind to the future:
"Listen, I won the fight. Windsor Park; let's do it."
Let's just hope the right song is played come August.
