This 2013 article and interview in the Guardian with Carl and Barry came up indirectly and unrelatedly to another recent message thread in this section about another local boxer.

It also includes a video. It's a very interesting article and video.

I see big T is on the card for windsor park now. So tempted to go. It would be a great day. I'm a big fan of Tyson Fury.https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=QSqboucovvQ

Am not a boxing fan but think Carl Frampton is a credit to this country.
A stark contrast to the other local boxer .
Reading the article I noticed the whole McGuigan family were on the payroll.

One has to ensure the entire family are passengers on the 'gravy train', otherwise it isn't worth it.  ;)

I don't think it was that bad to be fair and he did apologize like it states in the article you posted. He realised that he should stick to talking about boxing and nothing else. He is young after all despite the fact that he looks older than he really is.
