Carl Frampton comprehensively outpoints Kiko Martinez for the world title in front of 16,000 delirious supporters and cements his name into Irish boxing history. Follow that. One man who had to try was Belfast light-welterweight Matthew Wilton who came on in a four-rounder after the main event. To his credit Matthew not only kept his cool and motivation but posted one of his most impressive boxing performances to date en route to a 40-36 shutout of Poland’s Adam Cieslak.
Marc McCullough posted his most impressive victory to date when the Belfast featherweight forced Dmitry Kirillov’s corner to retire their man after eight punishing rounds. Marc made a successful defence of his WBO European title in the scheduled 10-rounder.
