Video: Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez lunge at each other in angry weigh-in scenes in Belfast's Ulster Hall


Jostling broke out between Carl 'The Jackal' Frampton and Kiko Martinez at the big-fight weigh-in at the Ulster Hall. The challenger and the champion were involved in bad-tempered pushing and lunging pushed at a snarling face-to-face encounter in front of hundreds of boxing fans. The pair appeared to trade insults after Martinez, who arrived late for the weigh-in, appeared to deliberately take his time changing into track bottoms and trainers, sparking fury from Jackal fans for the traditional post-weigh-in face-to-face photocall. Frampton arrived on stage to thunderous applause from a packed Ulster Hall, accompanied by manager Barry McGuigan and trainer Shane McGuigan and others. Martinez had arrived late for the weigh-in with an assistant displaying his title belt, only to face a barrage of booing from Frampton fans. Around 16,000 people are expected to flock to a specially-built arena at Titanic Quarter for tomorrow night's big fight, with police warning of severe traffic disruption in the area.
