Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton beats Kiko Martinez to claim world boxing title

Carl Frampton ended Northern Ireland's long wait for another boxing world champion on a night to savour in Belfast as he pounded Kiko Martinez to swipe away the Spaniard's title.

The 27-year-old, fighting in his home city, claimed an overwhelmingly unanimous verdict, the judges' scorecards showing two verdicts of 119-108 and one of 118-111.

Not since Wayne McCullough made a second successful defence of his WBC bantamweight title in 1996 has Northern Ireland been able to celebrate a global boxing title fight victory.
