I’m the legitimate champion and I will win in style says Frampton

Carl Frampton wants to settle his differences with Scott Quigg in stylish fashion when the pair finally trade leather on February 27th.

The fight which has been brewing longer than some expensive whiskeys was finally confirmed on Sky Sports News on Monday night, and the pair will swap trading verbal blows for blows of a more lethal kind in Manchester on Sky Sports pay per view.

‘The Jackal’ will have to travel from his den in Belfast, but claims he is content to beat WBA regular world champ Quigg on his home patch.

The IBF World champion and Irish favourite also pointed out that he is the legitimate World champion, and promised to put on a show in the Manchester Arena next spring.

“I’m delighted that we have finally got this fight signed,” said Frampton. “This is the fight everyone has wanted for years, none more so than myself. I’m the legitimate champion and I’m going to his backyard to defend my title because that’s what champions do. On February 27 the fans will find out who the real champion is, I’m going to win this fight in style.”
