Last night on BBC1 Northern Ireland the first episode of the docuseries ‘Fight Game: The McGuigans’ was aired to widespread acclaim.
The first of three parts, Tom Magnus of Ad Hoc Films followed Carl Frampton and the McGuigans as they travelled to New York last Summer to challenge for Leo Santa Cruz’s WBA featherweight title.
The raw thirty minute episode drew many plaudits last night and perfectly framed what was a brilliant moment in Irish boxing history.
