Frampton wants Windsor Park showdown with Quigg

CARL Frampton would love to emulate his hero’s and perform at World level in Windsor Park.

‘The Jackal’ is Northern Ireland’s number 1 fan and would love nothing more than to bring World title boxing to the venue were Michael O’Neills charges have performed so admirably this year.

Crusaders’s ground Seaview was always a venue the IBF super bantamweight champion had pushed for, but he believes he has out grown that venue and would like a unification clash or indeed a grudge match with Scott Quigg at Windsor.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph this week the Beflast fighter said.

“I’d love to fight at Windsor — the home of Northern Ireland, not Linfield!

“That would be a unique experience and Windsor really is looking great now, it’s looking the part and what a night that would be. It would have to be a unification fight or a fight with Scott Quigg — next summer would be great.

“Walking out there as world champion in the new completed Windsor would be extraordinary… walking around Windsor in front of the Northern Ireland fans with my belt after winning the world title was so special, there was only a couple of stands but to do it in front of a full stadium would be amazing.”
