Despite being a two-weight world champion and placing on many pound-for-pound top ten lists, it seems a meeting with Carl Frampton doesn't impress everyone.

The Belfast boxer was in Las Vegas for Saturday night to witness boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr's victory over the UFC's Conor McGregor when he spotted A-list actor Bruce Willis.

Tweeting about the encounter, Carl Frampton's wife Christine said that her husband asked the action star for a photograph but got "blanked".

"Cheeky git we won't be watching Armageddon again!!!" she wrote.

Bruce Willis is known for starring in films including Die Hard, the Sixth Sense and Armageddon, and played a boxer in 1994 Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction.
