Thursday, November 15th, 2018: 5.45-8.30pm, MSC
In what will be his final major appearance before he fights for the world title he once held Carl Frampton will be our dinner guest at the MSC on November 15th.
Five weeks later the Northern Irish former super-bantamweight and super featherweight world boxing champion steps into the ring at a packed-out MEN Arena in Manchester to face the current IBF world featherweight champion Josh Warrington in what should be one of the fights of the year in Britain. Despite this Frampton will take time out of his busy and gruelling training camp to tell his story at the MSC and there is much, much more to it than simply what has gone on inside the ropes. The only Northern Irishman ever to hold two boxing world titles at the same time and, indeed, the second Irishman after Steve Collins, Manchester-based Frampton hails from Belfast, a city known for its troubled history. A Protestant, he is married to a Catholic woman and has a large following of die-hard fans from both Catholic and Protestant backgrounds who attend his fights in large numbers. He sees unifying people with historical religious and political differences as very much part of his mission in life.
Come and listen to Carl in Manchester, meet other boxers on the night and enjoy photos, drinks and a two course dinner.
