Frampton Vows: I Want Quigg Next, Whenever, Any Time!

On Saturday night, Carl Frampton easily retained his commonwealth bantamweight title and immediately set his sights on a showdown with domestic rival Scott Quigg. Frampton proved far too good for Prosper Ankrah and stopped the Ghanaian at the end of the second round at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.

Frampton quickly took the centre of the ring in the first round but struggled to land after a cagey start from his opponent.

The 25-year-old from Belfast began to walk his man down in the second and the end came quickly after he connected with a left hook.

While not the cleanest of shots, Ankrah was sent sprawling to the floor as Frampton followed up with a flurry of shots and the challenger never looked like beating the count.

Frampton told Sky Sports afterwards: "It was (easy) once I hit him, it just shows I've got the power.

"The first round he was a bit tricky and I could tell he was more worried about getting hit than landing his own shots. You can see the power is there, once I hit him that was it."

Frampton is in no doubt as to who he wants to face next, calling out British super-bantamweight champion Quigg.

"I don't know if he (Quigg) wants it" Frampton continued. "He should tell his promoter (if he does). I want it the next fight, whenever, any time."

Quigg - who was ringside to watch his rival - insisted he would be happy to take the fight against Frampton, but confirmed he has agreed a deal to face Rendall Munroe in his next bout.

"I want it 100 percent," Quigg said of facing Frampton. "I've got to fight Rendall Munroe next, terms have been agreed and that's going to happen late May, early June. After that, if they want it I'll back it up, no problem."

Earlier in the night, Wales' Kerry Hope sprung a major shock as he defeated the hotly-fancied and previously unbeaten Pole Grzegorz Proksa to claim the European middleweight title.

Proksa was hampered by a nasty cut over his left eye caused by a clash of heads at the end of the second round.

An ill-tempered fight threatened to boil over at times and Hope was deducted a point after directing a head-butt at the his rival as the fighters clashed on the way back to their corners at the end of the eighth.

But he overcame that to clinch a majority decision, winning 115-112 and 114-113 on two cards with the other adjudging the contest a draw.

[QUOTE=right hand jab;11906658]Be careful what you ask for Carl. Just because you have some power, that doesn't mean you could compete with a talent like Quigg. Quigg by unanimous decision.[/QUOTE] Quigg is pretty sh1t tbh. I dont understand the hype.

Be careful what you ask for Carl. Just because you have some power, that doesn't mean you could compete with a talent like Quigg. Quigg by unanimous decision.
