Frampton launches Unsung Hero search

World champion Carl Frampton launches the search for BBC Sport NI's Unsung Hero and recalls one of the people who helped him in his early days in boxing.

"One of the guys who never gets much credit but who has been there from day one in my career is Cooper McClure who was a coach at Midlands Boxing Club," recalls the IBF world super-bantamweight champion.

"Cooper saw I had a wee bit of talent when I was young."
