Watch: Carl Frampton has 'Rocky' inspiration in Philadelphia

Belfast boxer Carl Frampton has taken a leaf out of Rocky Balboa's book - recreating an iconic scene from the 1976 classic Rocky.

The Tiger's Bay pugilist is currently in Philidelphia training ahead of his fight with Mexico's Emmanuel Dominguez next month and couldn't resist emulating the famous scene of Balboa running up the 72 steps at the Philidelphia Museum of Art.

Frampton is hoping a victory in next month's contest will set up a word title fight with WBO champion Oscar Valdez.
