Carl Frampton v Scott Quigg talks underway

Talks to make a mega bout between Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg are underway, claims the Bury super bantamweight.

Post IBF World champion Carl Frampton’s impressive defence against Chris Avalos both fighters seemed more than keen to ensure a clash that has been brewing for over five years made.

As with any big boxing bout there are certain things that need to be ironed out before a contract is signed, but Quigg claims ‘talks’ are on going and he is hopeful the clash will be made.

“We’re in talks now and it’s going well. Hopefully, fingers crossed, it can be made because it’s the fight the public deserve,” said the WBA regular champion.

“I’ll fight in Belfast, Manchester or London. It doesn’t matter. I’m 100 per cent confident I will get the job done. I know what I have to do.

“After his performance on Saturday night, a lot of people are writing me off. It doesn’t matter. I know what I need to do and I’ll prove a lot of people wrong when that fight gets made.

“It’s another George Groves v Carl Froch. It captures the imagination of not just boxing fans but the general public too.

“There couldn’t be a better time – we’re both undefeated and both World champions. It just sets it up for a great fight.

“It’s the fight I want, he wants and the British public want. What gives me confidence is that if Floyd Mayweather Jr v Manny Pacquiao can be made, I’m sure me and Carl Frampton can get made,” he added.
