The IBF have revealed that a unification bout between Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg has been ‘agreed’.
The governing body of which Carl Frampton is super bantamweight World champion, told World Boxing News that they have approved a unification bout and are just waiting on signed contracts before sanctioning the bout.
‘The Jackal’ was initially ordered to defend against Japan’s Shingo Wake, who is mandatory for the fan-favourite’s title, however the IBF have cancelled purse bids on that clash, opening the door to a mega Frampton v Quigg clash.
The IBF’s Jeannette Salazar told World Boxing News:
“There is no purse bid scheduled for that (Frampton v Wake). Frampton v Quigg was tentatively approved for the unification and we are just waiting on the signed contracts to sanction the fight.”
Irish-boxing.com revealed last week that a venue had been agreed for the clash and that two dates in February were being discussed. Salazar revealed February looks most likely.
“The date we have is in February, but not specific yet.”
