Quigg: I'm Very Confident of Beating Carl Frampton

Scott Quigg was impressed by Carl Frampton's victory over Kiko Martinez - but is still confident he will come out on top when, not if, the two super-bantamweights meet in the ring. Belfast boy Frampton thrilled his home crowd inside the Odyssey Arena on Saturday night by becoming the first man to stop Martinez, flooring the Spaniard in the ninth with a superb straight right.

Quigg was at ringside to see his rival claim the European title in only his 16th professional fight and was full of praise for the new champion.

"It was very impressive to be honest," he told Sky Sports. "He kept his cool. I thought for the first four or five rounds Martinez was going to be dangerous. Then he (Frampton) started applying the pressure and chipping away, stopping him late on just as I thought he would."

"They are talking about getting an IBF shot, or a WBC shot, if there's a world title on the line then that would be even bigger. But the fight (with us) will definitely happen. I want it and he wants it. It's got to happen - the public want it. He was getting tagged. But he'll say the same about me if he sees me fight. But there were things I saw tonight which are new. I'm very confident (of winning) when the fight happens."

I'm wondering if Hatton will try and get his fighters on the Golden Boy show's when they enter the UK market with Ogogo. Has anybody heard if ESPN UK will ever dip into the boxing market?

tough one, but Quigg by stoppage, Frampton would have to box even better than he did v Martinez to beat him & doubt he'd be able to stop him (unless Quigg made big mistakes)

Was never that impressed by Framps but can't argue the end results that KO win did enough to make him a somebody...

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5;13020657]Yep. Surly it can't be hard to make the fight[/QUOTE] It depends who Hatton signs his stable with. Frampton is with Matchroom and Sky Sports (Who Hatton was just dropped from) so it's hard to say at this point. If…
