“Meet the Champions” event at Ulster Hall

Updated: January 13, 2015

On Saturday 25th October a group of local young people travelled to the Ulster Hall to take part in a “Meet the Champions” event where they had the chance to meet and train with the newly crowned Super¬†Bantam weight World Champion, Carl Frampton.

The young people had the chance to take part in some pad work, circuit training as well as a nutritional talk before having a question and answer session with the man himself, on the trials and tribulations that come when competing at the highest level of the sport.

“I was just a kid with a dream who wanted to do well and win a world title, I was no better than anyone else, but I worked hard. There’s a couple of hundred kids here – who’s to say we don’t have another world champion here today?” explained the champ.
