Barry McGuigan and Carl Frampton have reached a settlement in their bitter three-and-and-a-half-year legal battle.

The toxic breakdown of a once-celebrated sporting relationship was laid bare across 19 days of evidence at the High Court in Belfast since September.
After settling with Frampton, McGuigan said: ‘We feel that the mutual understanding between us and Carl Frampton will work in favour of both parties.
‘We will now focus exclusively on what we do best rather than spending time and money in the courtroom.’
Frampton, who will push to become a three-weight world champion in 2021, said: ‘The terms of the settlement are confidential between the parties but I can say I am extremely happy with them, and welcome the fact the legal dispute has now ended.
