Respect: Carl Frampton
Treating people as you want to be treated with boxing legend Carl Frampton
Treating people as you want to be treated with boxing legend Carl Frampton, Northern Ireland’s first two weight World Champion. Carl is one of the most down to earth boxers on the planet. He's also one of the most popular, with his fans willing to travel all over the world to watch their man in action. The theme of this chat chat is 'respect'. Carl grew up in Belfast, in the loyalist area of Tigers Bay. The next housing estate across was the New Lodge which was Republican. As a child, he witnessed tension and traumatising scenes. Carl is a very humble and level headed guy, and he takes pride in uniting people, wherever they're from, and whatever they believe. He's always been one to people at face value, but getting into boxing when he was young helped reinforce that side of his character. In this episode, Carl explains why having a focus is so important, and why sport in particular can help people integrate. He talks about getting your priorities right, not showing off and why it's worth expecting the unexpected.
