Fight Game VR

Step inside the ropes at McGuigan's Gym and face up to Carl Frampton in virtual reality.

If that sounds a little terrifying, don't worry too much – you'll have the expertise of Shane McGuigan, Carl's trainer, in your corner to help you through it.

Legendary boxer Barry McGuigan, Carl's manager and the man who runs the Cyclone stable, is also on hand in the gym to give a unique insight into how champion boxers are forged.

On mobile or tablet, simply tilt or drag your finger across the screen to look around. On desktop or laptop computers, click on the video with your mouse or use the arrow keys to explore. Just try not to get hit. Good luck!
