Specsavers staff at Victoria Square were delighted that Northern Ireland’s top boxing champ Carl Frampton secured a famous victory in New York beating Leo Santa Cruz to win the WBA World Featherweight title.

Carl, accompanied by his wife Christine, officially opened the brand new Specsavers store at Victoria Square on Saturday 18 June. Hundreds of fans turned out at the Specsavers store to meet and greet Carl and see the new flagship, two storey state-of-the-art optical and audiology store.

Brilliant day with Carl

Specsavers Victoria Square store director Neal Kerr said having Carl as the VIP guest to mark the store opening was a very special and memorable day, ‘Carl chatted to staff, patients and Victoria Square customers and is such a down to earth guy. We had a fabulous opening day with Carl and Q Radio and it was one of his last official engagements before he focussed on final preparations for the big fight in New York.’

‘Carl is now the first Northern Ireland fighter to win a world title in two weight divisions and we’re privileged that he helped us celebrate our special opening day in June. Everyone at Specsavers Victoria Square sends huge congratulations and we look forward to Carl and his family popping into the store whenever he is in central Belfast. We’d also like to wish him the very best of luck for future fights.’
