Video: Carl Frampton respects Tyson Fury's title win

Andy Murray may have claimed the BBC Sports Personality of the Year crown - but for Carl Frampton, controversial fighter Tyson Fury would have had his vote for his performance in the ring.

Carl told the Belfast Telegraph: "But in terms of sporting achievements, and I'm not going to talk about things he has said, it was hard to look past Tyson Fury as well.

"He defeated one of the longest ever reigning heavyweight champions in Wladimir Klitschko, when no one ever expected him to do it, including myself.
