Eddie Hearn wants Ireland v England on Frampton-Quigg undercard

In case the prospect of Frampton-Quigg wasn’t enough, Matchroom head honcho Eddie Hearn wants to stack the undercard with Irish fighters.

Hearn, who promotes Scott Quigg, specifically pointed out the possibility of Frampton’s stablemates appearing on the massive February 27th bill at the Manchester Arena – and stated that he aims to have an Ireland v England theme to a night which promises to have an unbelievable atmosphere.

Speaking to IFL TV, Hearn revealed that “hopefully we can match Cyclone fighters with our [Matchroom] fighters.”

“I’m hoping for a little bit of an England v Ireland theme running through the card.”

Between Matchroom, Cyclone, and Al Haymon there are sure to be a number of Irish fighters who will be angling to get on the huge card
