Further glory for Carl Frampton

Carl Frampton's open air win over Luke Jackson in front of 24,000 boxing fans at Windsor Park in Belfast on Saturday night was a memorable occasion by any standards.

Frampton's convincing victory means that he will almost certainly get the opportunity to fight for a world championship later in the year.
