Former world champion Carl Frampton's wife Christine has revealed a disgusting death threat sent to her via Facebook recently.

Sent via direct message, the culprit threatened to murder Christine, Carl and their two children in what was a sickening warning.

Posting on her Twitter account, Christine stated the message said: "You and your kids and Carl are getting murdered by the UVF, so f***ing watch."

Both Christine and Carl have since appealed for information about the person in question, who has since deleted the social media account.

Frampton is a two-weight world title holder in his own right and has been honored by the Queen as one of the greatest fighters to come out of his native Northern Ireland.

Managed and promoted by Barry McGuigan, Frampton is known as one of the pound for pound best fighters from UK shores, having conquered American when defeating Leo Santa Cruz in 2016.

'The Jackal' lost a rematch to Santa Cruz earlier this year, but is expected to be back in action this summer and has been linked to facing Welshman Lee Selby in yet another title challenge.
