Hearn Requests Meeting To Make Quigg-Frampton

By Shaun Brown

Matchroom Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn told BoxingScene today that it’s “Music to our ears” after discovering that Leo Santa Cruz wants to face WBA Super-bantamweight champion Scott Quigg in a unification clash in July or August instead of Carl Frampton, according to quotes from The Daily Mail’s website earlier today.

Santa Cruz, the WBC belt holder at 122lbs told SportsMail: “I think I will fight Scott Quigg before Carl Frampton, he has the belt and Frampton doesn’t have one right now.  It’s a better opportunity against Scott.”

In response, Hearn told ‘Scene: “We’d be more than happy to step up and face Santa Cruz in a unification, let’s make it happen.”

But Hearn also informed BS that he is due to meet with Carl Frampton’s team this week in order to push through a fight between the Northern Irishman and Quigg.

“My number one choice without any shadow of a doubt is Carl Frampton for Quigg.  We’ve made offers, we’ve requested meetings and we’re waiting to hear back from the McGuigans about a meeting this Friday which I’ve asked to be brought forward.  I want to try and get moving.  Let’s just get in a room and get the fight made.  I want (Quigg) to fight Carl Frampton, and that’s what everyone wants, but if they don’t want it then our number one target is Santa Cruz.”

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;14527220]Haha no surprises there. Hearn was giving it the Barry Large saying Kiko-Frampton won't happen. Or was that Santa Cruz? It may have been Santa Cruz actually, I forget. Anyway, Frampton-Kiko's a good fight again. First one was competitive before…
