VIDEO: The Carl Frampton punch that broke Scott Quigg’s jaw

Carl Frampton inflicted a broken jaw upon Scott Quigg en-route to a decisive win in the pair’s super bantamweight World title unification on Saturday night.

The break came via a Jackal uppercut in the fourth round of the Sky Sports PPV showdown at the Manchester Arena.

Massive credit must go to the Englishman for absorbing the shot and continuing for a further eight rounds with the injury.

Quigg underwent jaw surgery yesterday morning and hopefully his career will not be too negatively affected by the damage done by the fists of the Belfast star.

The shot that did the damage by Frampton was a huge one, and can be re-watched in gloriously visceral slow-motion below:
