McGuigan and Gallagher clash at heated Frampton-Quigg weigh-in

While Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg did not have to be separated at their head-to-head this time round, there was still a scuffle at the Manchester Arena this afternoon.

Trainers Shane McGuigan and Joe Gallagher almost came to blows up on the big stage after a disagreement, seemingly about the scales.

Shoving ensued and the pair engaged in a heated shouting match as the pre-fight temperatures hit boiling point.
