Hearn suggests June 20 for Frampton v Quigg mega fight

TEAM CWM Cyclone and Eddie Hearn took Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg talks to the next level in London today.

Barry McGuigan, Frampton and the Cyclone team meet with the Matchroom boss to try and iron out some issues.

Speaking in his Daily Mail column Hearn suggested June 20 as a possible date, but claimed a deal will have to be sorted very soon if the mega clash is to go ahead in the Summer.

“I will meet Barry McGuigan and Carl Frampton’s team in London today as we work towards making the fight everyone wants to see between Carl and Scott Quigg. Two world champions from Britain in the same division – they simply have to fight.

“I have submitted my proposal to them and am waiting to hear what they have from their side. I feel we need to make progress now. The hope is for a summer fight, possibly on June 20. But all dates, venues and purse splits can’t be decided until we know where we are going with the broadcaster.

“I think we need to reach some kind of agreement soon, probably the next two or three weeks, if we are to get this fight on in the summer. It really is the fight people want to see.”
