Carl Frampton stunned the world on Saturday night as he beat Leo Santa Cruz to win the WBA world featherweight title.
In front of a packed out New York crowd, Frampton showed off his incredible skill and determination to win out on points, with two judges calling it a clear win for the 29-year-old while the third saw it as a draw.
So, how did the first Northern Irish fighter to win a world title in two weight divisions celebrate? Well, by packing out a Manhattan bar with his most devoted fans of course.

Frampton hired out Annie Moore’s, a popular Irish bar in the Big Apple, to celebrate with the Jackal Army - the name given to his fans that follow him all over the world.
According to Belfast Live, Frampton signed autographs and posed for selfies with his adoring faithful.
Frampton is also reported to have bought a round for everyone at the bar, which will have taken a small chunk out of the £380,000 he pocketed for beating Santa Cruz on Saturday.
However, despite the fact that 1,200 of his fans proved their loyalty by making the trip to the United States, Frampton has claimed that he wants to repay them by having one of his next fights back at Windsor Park in Belfast.
“I want to fight here (in the USA) and I want to fight at home. I’m a Belfast boy and I love my fans back home,” he said.
“I don’t want for them to have to spend so much money to come here and see me all the time. I would like to fight in Belfast at least once a year.”
The next time he does fight in his home country, we're sure that the party will be much bigger than just one bar.
