Gallagher: Quigg wants to prove ‘haters’ wrong by winning Frampton rematch

Scott Quigg is committed and ready to make the step up to featherweight if it means a rematch with Carl Frampton, says Joe Gallagher.

Quigg lost the world super-bantamweight unification clash with Frampton in front of a packed Manchester Arena and subsequently underwent surgery on a broken jaw.

Joe Gallagher his trainer revealed he is already talking about a comeback and is determined to turn the tables on the Belfast man.

The coach with Sligo heritage told SKY Sports  “Scott’s already said he wants the rematch, is hell-bent on the rematch and I think Carl wants to move up to featherweight and fight Leo Santa Cruz. If it means Scott moving up there, following him to get the rematch, then that’s what he will do.”

Despite the loss on split decision to Frampton, Gallagher is adamant Quigg can get the better of the ‘Jackal’ in a rematch

“He’s 100 per cent convinced after being in there that he can do.” said Gallagher.

Team Quigg are that keen on a repeat they are willing to step into the ring as soon as Bury man recovers from his broken jaw.

“We’d go straight in to the rematch. There’s talk of it being at Windsor Park over there and that’s one Scott Quigg wants first and foremost – to get back in there and prove to all the haters who are giving him stick that he can beat Carl Frampton,” added Gallagher.

Frampton highlighted Leo Santa Cruz as his preferred option and has a number of options, but has said he would repeat with Quigg if the fans demanded it.
