Frampton Hopes To Finish The Rubbish With Scott Quigg

By Edward Chaykovsky

Carl Frampton (18-0, 13KOs) has a big fight this coming Saturday night at Titanic Quarter in Belfast, when he faces IBF super bantamweight champion Kiko Martinez (31-4, 23KOs) in a rematch. Last February, Frampton knocked out Martinez in the ninth round.

After Martinez, Frampton wants to fight his domestic rival, WBA 'regular' champion Scott Quigg (28-0-2, 21KOs), in a unification. Quigg faces Stephane Jamoye (26-5, 16KOs) in a title defense on September 13th in Manchester.

Frampton-Quigg is one of the biggest matches to be made on UK soil.

"If I remain cool and stick to the game-plan, there's only one winner in this fight," said Frampton to BBC Sport. "After Kiko, there are a few guys to be taken care of in the super bantamweight division. I'd be telling a lie if I said I didn't want to finish all that rubbish with Scott Quigg once and for all. People still think he's better than me. I don't know why."

[QUOTE=ImStillHere;14908170]And Frampton said not YET, that was around 2-3 years ago and Frampton admitted he wasn't ready. Don't care what anyone says The Jackal will beat El Chacal. I supported Rigo when people like you were calling him "boring" and…

I still consider Rigo to be boring, even if he has superb defensive skills and counter punching ability. The last fight versus Kokietgym doesn't change anything because it was a bogus sucker punch against a non-A class fighter. That doesn't…

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14906492]Are you serious when you write this sh1t?[/QUOTE] And yes he probably is, Quigg is hype and Framps will murder him.

[QUOTE=Mick Higgs;14906250]Rigo's manager Gary Hyde has offered fights to Santa Cruz, Quigg, Frampton & Martinez. However none of them want to know! Quigg would have been better winning a Lonsdale belt out-right rather then play at being a Micky Mouse…
