I stuck to the game plan and at times my boxing was beautiful,” Frampton told BT Sport as he looked forward to having a world-title shot at Belfast’s Windsor Park — best known as the home ground of Northern Ireland’s football team.“There is only one thing on my mind at the moment — a world title fight at Windsor Park and I can’t wait to get there.”Frampton, who split from promoter Barry McGuigan last year, before ditching Shane McGuigan, Barry’s son, as his trainer, added: “In the 11th round I was definitely hurt but I survived it and that’s what champions do.“My trainer Jamie Moore deserves a lot of credit, the game plan was perfect. When it got close I needed to use my straighten which I did. I wasn’t in the middle range too much and when I was, I got caught.“But Donaire is a world class fighter and a world class gentleman.“There is not a man on this planet at featherweight who is going to beat me at Windsor Park.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next All that was at stake was the World Boxing Organization’s interim featherweight belt, not a fully-fledged title.But by coming out on top by a margin of 117-111 on all three judges’ scorecards, the 31-year-old Frampton kept himself on course for a bout with the winner of next month’s International Boxing Federation title fight between Lee Selby and Josh Warrington.WBO champion Oscar Valdez could also lie in wait for the 31-year-old Frampton, a former world title holder at both super-bantamweight and featherweight.Prior to Saturday’s bout — which just carried on past midnight local time (2300 GMT) — Northern Ireland’s Frampton had rated Donaire, a seven-time world champion across four separate weight classes, as the most “accomplished fighter I have ever faced”.But the 35-year-old Filipino did not appear to be at his very best in Belfast, although he did rock Frampton with several solid punches in the 11th round of 12.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ Never in doubt 😏Carl Frampton is declared the winner over Nonito Donaire.A professional display 👊 pic.twitter.com/eAORmDKy3u— Boxing on BT Sport (@BTSportBoxing) April 21, 2018FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

Murder mystery entices applicants

first_imgOxford University’s Admissions Office have used a murder mystery event to try and increase applications from state sector pupils. During the Easter vacation University authorities invited local schoolchildren to take part in the event, based at Pembroke College. 50 students, aged between 14 and 15, were greeted at the beginning of their three-day visit by a body on the front quad, followed by the revelation of the Morse-like murder mystery scenario.Students were faced with a number of conundrums including a letter written in Syriac, which they were able to decode after a master class given by Gareth Hughes of the Oriental Institute. Hughes praised the intentions of the programme: “The best way to encourage the brightest to Oxford is to stimulate and challenge.  The Access Programme is incredibly important – especially considering Oxford’s position and status as a fairly elite institution. The murder mystery event is therefore an excellent way of engaging bright and enquiring minds in a variety of different ways.” Sinead Gallagher, the University’s Access Co-ordinator, organised the event.  She noted, “Summer schools often attract more girls than boys, so we wanted to give the residential a theme that would be appealing to boys in particular. ‘Murder in the Cloisters’ should be great fun for all taking part, and the students will learn a lot about what going to University means: study your sources carefully, learn to gather facts and question them, and draw your conclusion based on firm evidence.”Ché Ramsden, an assistant on the programme and first year English student at Wadham, spoke of the myths which still surround the University. “Some children I spoke to were under the impression that you have to incredibly rich to apply to Oxford – one even thought that fees were in excess of £20,000 a year. This couldn’t be further from the truth.  The most important part of the Access Programme is destructing the false impressions people have of the University and its students – we’ve got to show young people that we are, on the whole, fairly normal people from normal backgrounds.”  One of the students taking part in the programme, Michael Dare of New Brompton College in Kent, spoke of his impressions of the University. “Before I came here I just thought everyone would be really posh and stuck up. Now I’m here I can see that the students are normal and pretty down to earth. I could really see myself coming here when I’m older.”last_img
