Frampton: wants Belfast stadium fight with Quigg next summer

CARL Frampton wants to have a massive stadium fight with Scott Quigg next Summer.

The IBF super bantamweight champion of the World stated his desire to settle his Quigg differences minutes after he dethroned Kiko Martinez in front of 16,000 fight fans in September.

A December clash was then muted by team Quigg, but not only does a hand injury ensure December is too soon, Frampton first wants to get his mandatory defence out of the way.

‘The Jackal’, who is just days away from a return to training, suggests 24 year old number 1 ranked contender Chris Avalos will act as opponent for a first defence most likely to play out in February. Emerge victorious and then the World Champion will set his sights on Quigg and a massive domestic dust up.

“I want to fight Scott Quigg next but I have to fight this mandatory challenger so that can’t happen,” said Framptonl.

“But after that I can fight Quigg as a voluntary defence – the Odyssey Arena would be too small, it needs to be outdoor somewhere. You could have it in Belfast, maybe Windsor Park or Ravenhill, put 30,000 people in there in the summer time.”
