Carl Frampton v Scott Quigg betting specials

Carl Frampton and Joe Gallagher have both explained at length how the showdown between Frampton and Quigg next Saturday should not just be reduced to an Ireland v England affair.

However, for anybody who fancies a flutter, you can take a punt on which way the three fights on the card between Irish and English boxers will go as bookmaking giant Paddy Power have released a ‘Ireland v England’ market for the Manchester Arena show.

Top of the bill, of course, sees Frampton versus Quigg for the IBF and WBA super bantamweight titles. On the undercard, Marco McCullough takes on Isaac Lowe for the Commonwealth featherweight title, and Luke Wilton challenges Charlie Edwards in a British flyweight title eliminator.

While Carl Frampton is a favourite going into his bout, Marco McCullough and Luke Wilton are slight and huge underdogs respectively.

Therefore in the combined ‘Ireland v England’ market, it is our neighbours across the Irish Sea who are 4/11 favourites, with Ireland being priced at 15/8.

Additionally, one can bet on the exact ‘score’ of the three bouts, and an Irish clean sweep is a massive 35/1. Ireland to win two and lose one is a value-less 15/8, while the same result for England is a narrow 5/6. A disaster night for Irish boxing where all three lose is a relatively short 4/1.
