Big Dilemma for Frampton if he beats Quigg

Carl Frampton will be left with a World title dilemma if he beats Scott Quigg in Manchester 27.

‘The Jackal’ will be hoping to retain his super bantamweight IBF title with victory at the Manchester Arena and has been afforded the opportunity to claim the WBA World title after that governing body made Guillermo Rigondeaux champion in recess and made Quigg Champion.

The WBA have since ordered that the winner of the massive Sky PPV clash face the much avoided Cuban by July or or be stripped of the title and it seems the IBF have similar ideas.

The IBF claim the winner must face mandatory challenger Shingo Wake of Japan or lose the strap.

“The IBF approved Frampton vs. Quigg with the condition that the winner must fight Wake next,” the IBF told World Boxing News.

“On September 28, 2015, Frampton and Wake were ordered to negotiate the IBF Jr. Featherweight (super-bantamweight) Championship mandatory defense and we expect the winner to fight Wake next.”

Considering the rate at with the WBA is losing respect Frampton may be best served to go the IBF route and fight Wake if he does beat Quigg, however he has always stated a desire to fight ‘Rigo’.

Indeed, the Belfast fighter wants to prove he is the best at the weight in the world and he has often indicated he needs to defeated Rigondeaux to prove that.
