Carl Froch can’t split them.
‘The Cobra’ claims Carl Frampton versus Scott Quigg is a genuine 50/50 clash.
The former World champion, who knocked out George Groves in front of 80,000 people in Wembley before retiring, believes the massive February 27 Frampton versus Quigg clash is too close to call.
Considering it’s a PPV clash most would expect the majority of Sky Pundits to suggest as much, but Froch, who once shared the ring with Belfast’s Brian Magee, is noted as a straight talking annalist who doesn’t feel pressure to two the party line.
“That is a big fight and it is great that the fight has been made. We are also going to find out on February 27 who is the best,” Froch told Sky.
“I really believe it is a 50/50 fight and I am going to leave my prediction to fight week – because honestly at this moment in time cannot pick a winner.
“Quigg has looked brilliant recently and is a good fighter
“But Frampton is a great wee fighter, great champion, with fast workrate. I rate him very highly, he is strong and he has a great team behind him with Barry and Shane McGuigan.
“But I will wait to fight week, when I can look into their eyes and then I will pick the winner. At the minute this is a real 50/50 fight,” added Froch.”
