Quigg: The look on McGuigan’s face when I beat Frampton will be payment enough

SCOTT Quigg says money couldn’t buy the satisfaction he would get from upsetting Barry McGuigan by beating Carl Frampton in the Summer.

Post Frampton’s extremely impressive title defence on Saturday night the Irish Boxing legend warned Quigg against pricing himself out of a fight that could propel him to super stardom.

The Matchroom fighter admits he is content to collect a big pay day after what will most likely be a stadium fight, but claims the look on McGuigan’s face when ‘The Jackal’ is dethroned would prove payment enough.

“That’s a bonus,” he told the Guardian when asked about all things money. “What means more to me is seeing a picture of McGuigan’s face when I beat his fighter. The look on his face money couldn’t buy.”

Having seen Frampton destroy his mandatory challenger and a puncher some suggest is better that Quigg, theWBA Regular champion would be forgive for avoiding the Belfast star, but he remains keen to get it on.

“There’s no calling anybody out. If they want that fight, I’m ready for it. For me, it’s the biggest fight in British boxing.”

“I 100% believe I’ll beat him and he’ll say the same – and that’s what will make a great fight,” he added before praising the Frampton’s support and his performance against Chris Avalos.

“The atmosphere was fantastic. The Irish are boxing people. They know and appreciate the sport.”

““He boxed well, kept calm. As long as he kept his cool it was only a matter of time before Avalos started getting reckless and overconfident. When he started doing that Carl picked the right shots. You couldn’t argue with the stoppage. He boxed well.”
