When worlds collide: 'Jackal' Carl Frampton meets 'Notorious' Conor McGregor in Boston

Two legends of Irish sport teamed up for the first time in Boston on Saturday night.

Belfast's own Carl Frampton met up with MMA superstar Conor McGregor at a boxing card featuring an array of Irish talent.

The Jackal took to Twitter to show off his new pal.

"Absolute commotion when this man enters the building," Frampton wrote.

"Nice to finally meet Conor McGregor."

The pair met at the TD Garden for a card featuring Katie Taylor, Tommy Coyle and local fighter James Tennyson.

McGregor is no stranger to boxing himself having taken on Floyd Mayweather in one of the most watched fights of all-time last year.
