World Champion Boxer Carl Frampton launches his autobiography 'Carl Frampton: My Autobiography' in Castlebar tonight.

This is part of the Wild Atlantic Words literacy festival, and gets underway the Connacht Boxing Centre of Excellence in Lough Lannagh at 7:00pm.

Carl spoke to Midwest Radio Sport's Rian Bailey today ahead of the launch, about his memories fighting in Mayo as a young boxer.

He also paid a touching tribute to the late Belfast boxer Hugh Russell, an Olympic medalist in 1980 who passed away today.
