WBA and IBF super bantamweight World champion and MBE Carl Frampton is set for another honour.
A civic reception is to be held by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council for Carl Frampton
The decision to stage the event comes after a notice of motion was passed on Monday at the monthly Council meeting.
The motion was proposed by Alderman Carla Lockhart and seconded by Cllr Paul Greenfield and Alderman Junior McCrum.
It called for an “immediate congratulatory message” to be sent to The Jackal following his success in defeating Scott Quigg to become Ireland’s first ever unified World champion and a civic reception will be organised, to which the boxer and his family, together with his team of coaches, will be officially invited.
