Frampton to spar with top road racer at UGP thumbnail

THE organisers of the MCE Ulster Grand Prix have announced a special event featuring boxing world champion Carl Frampton and international road racing star Lee Johnston, to take place just days after Frampton's highly anticipated bout against Mexican fighter Andres Gutierrez.
The dynamic duo, who met just over a year ago when Lee went to check out the Jackal's training regime in London, will be interviewed live on stage by the BBC's Mark Sidebottom in the Grand Prix Marquee on Wednesday, August 9.
The event will take place in aid of F13K Cancer, a charity founded by Lee that supports Marie Curie NI, with a minimum donation of 200 per table of 10.
Tickets are available to purchase from JDM Management on 028 9066 5664 or by emailing
Bike Week runs from August 6-12 and includes the Charles Hurst Motorcycles Dundrod 150 and the MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix road races.
