By winning the featherweight world title in 2016, Frampton became the first boxer from Northern Ireland and only the second boxer from Ireland to have held world titles in two weight classes.

Additionally, Frampton challenged for his world title in September of 2014, in a rematch against Kiko Martinez. Matinez’s IBF super Bantamweight title was at stake and the bout took place in an outdoor arena at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast.
Fighting in front of a crowd of 16,000 people, Frampton knocked Martinez down in the fifth round and won by a unanimous decision, with two scores of 119-108 and one score of 118-111, winning his first world title.
